Sexual Misconduct at Work after #Me Too: A View from the US and Europe
Sexual harassment in the workplace remains a headline issue for employers globally. Heightened levels of awareness mean that employees feel more able and willing to report incidents of sexual misconduct. In addition to significant legal liabilities and workforce disruption, sexual harassment raises serious reputational and regulatory risks for employers.
In this webinar scheduled for Nov. 20, members of BCLP’s global Employment & Labor Team will look at the practical issues employers need to consider. Using a case study and focusing on the US, the UK, France, Germany and Russia, presenters will cover:
- Where we are now, two years after the start of the #MeToo movement;
- Comparisons of legal protections in the US, UK, France, Germany and Russia;
- Practical tips for conducting a sexual harassment investigation; and
- The best steps to take to mitigate risks.
Presenters will include Kansas City Partner Elaine Koch, Los Angeles Counsel Pamela Calvet, London Associate Director Adam Turner, London Senior Associate Catherine McGrath, Paris Counsel François Alambret and Berlin Counsel Katharina von Rosenstiel.
