Please join BakerHostetler for a briefing from leading employment attorneys and a crisis management specialist on the unique challenges facing companies and in-house counsel when allegations of sexual harassment arise against top executives and other key employers. This seminar is not intended as a primer on sexual harassment claims generally, but will focus instead on the especially difficult problems posed by complaints lodged about a company’s most critical performers.

This presentation will specifically address:
  • The specific problems arising from complaints against executives
  • Practical steps to reduce such claims and to resolve them appropriately when they arise
  • Addressing the impact of such claims, whether valid or invalid, on the organization
  • Dealing with the internal and external communications arising from allegations against key employees
Speakers:

1.5 hour Ohio CLE credit pending. SHRM and HRCI credit available.
