The revelations about Harvey Weinstein and the #metoo movement have placed workplace sexual harassment in the spotlight like never before. With employees new found willingness to speak up come additional challenges for employers in their handling of harassment complaints, where their response may be subject to scrutiny, both internally and externally, and potentially played out over social media or the courts. The second webinar on Thursday, May 24, at 12:30 EDT/9:30 PDT is aimed at US human resources professionals or corporate employment/labor counsel with responsibility for UK based employees and will cover:

  • Whether the dial has changed on what amounts to harassment;
  • Immediate steps to be taken and some pitfalls of acting prematurely;
  • How and who should carry out an investigation and legal professional privilege as it applies to internal investigations;
  • The territorial scope of UK sexual harassment protection;
  • Beyond the allegations; what to do next;
  • Employer's liability and defenses;
  • Reputational issues, NDAs and publicity.
