Employment - Harassment and Discrimination Training and Risk Management
Recent headlines shine a light on the difficulties presented to employers when there are accusations of sexual harassment. Unfortunately, this type of misconduct is not limited to prominent executives, celebrities and politicians. Employers risk financial liability, a talent drain, reputational damage, and lowered employee morale and productivity in the wake of such claims.
Strategies exist to minimize the risk presented by harassment complaints. Employers need to train employees, identify and address problem employees, and adopt policies to protect employees and the business.
Employers must also know how to properly address the complaint by conducting investigations, remediating the behavior, evaluating risks for similar, repeated or unreported behaviors, and identifying a culture that permitted the conduct to happen. Federal and state laws impose requirements for conducting these investigations in a way that protects the business. Seeking the advice of an experienced employment attorney is an important protection and a worthwhile investment in the health of the business.
