Please join BakerHostetler for a legal seminar about the unique challenges facing companies and in-house counsel when allegations of sexual harassment arise against key employees. With the rise of the #MeToo movement, it is imperative that employers develop a proactive plan to anticipate and promptly address sexual harassment concerns. The seminar will focus on the current legal, legislative and social environment and how all are impacting employers’ approaches to sexual harassment allegations.  We will also discuss key steps employers can take to prepare for and respond to the especially difficult problems posed by complaints lodged about a company’s most critical performers.

This presentation will specifically address: 

  • The impact of the #MeToo movement and social media on the legal, legislative, and corporate landscape – what to expect
  • Practical risk reduction steps employers can take now
  • Effective investigation techniques for high-level complaints
  • Addressing internal and external communications
