When it comes to sexual harassment claims, employers must make difficult and time-sensitive decisions, sometimes with “bet-the-company” consequences. Join Sarah Lamar, Vice Chair of the Chamber’s HR Council and employment law partner with the Savannah-based law firm of HunterMaclean, to discuss how employees and employers are addressing harassment claims in the era of the #MeToo movement. We will review the new challenges faced by employers in responding to harassment claims and explore topics such as:
- Maintaining the integrity of an investigation
- The role of social media in framing complaints and the employer’s findings
- The need for proactive training of managers and other employees
- Other measures to prevent or minimize harassment in the workplace
