Impact of the #MeToo Movement: Changes in Enforcement and State Law

Presented by Kara M. Maciel and Lindsay A. DiSalvo on April 22nd at 1pm ET / 10am PT regarding:

 

Over the past three years, we have seen the continued momentum of the #MeToo Movement and its impacts – beyond the immediate and direct effects of the specific allegations – have taken shape. In the wake of the prominence of the Movement and its influence on the discourse surrounding issues of harassment, the states and the federal government have taken action to tackle what they see as the underlying issues that foster harassment. Indeed, several states, such as New York and Illinois, have passed laws requiring employers to implement such things as sexual harassment prevention policies and training at their facilities – some of the laws even specifically describe what those policies and/or trainings must contain. It is essential for employers to understand the legal requirements and restrictions surrounding this issue to ensure compliance with federal and state law.

 

Participants will learn about the following:

  • The legal standards for sexual harassment and their nuances;

  • New state law requirements for sexual harassment prevention policies and training;

  • General recommendations for anti-harassment policies, complaint procedures, and training; and

  • Best Practices for investigating and addressing complaints of sexual harassment
