Concerns about sexual misconduct in the workplace and pay inequality are top of mind for employers and the focus of advocacy groups, state legislatures, and plaintiffs’ lawyers. In this presentation we’ll cover both of these hot topics and provide you with practical guidance and update you on recent developments.

  • Employers, HR professionals and in-house counsel must be proactive in creating a harassment-free workplace and knowledgeable about what to do when sexual harassment claims are made as the topic continues to take center stage.  We’ll discuss
  • Recommendations for managing and preventing harassment in your organization
  • Best practices for handling a sexual harassment investigation
  • Effective harassment prevention training strategies in this new era

Pay equity laws are expanding, and protections in New York, California, Massachusetts (in July) and other locations significantly exceed federal regulations.  Class action lawsuits focused on fair pay are increasing, and negative publicity can hurt employee recruiting, retention and customer relationships. In New York, with liquidated damages of 300% and a 6-year statute of limitations, pay equity suits may just be too hard for plaintiffs’ lawyers to resist.  We will discuss:

  • Updates on recent pay equity developments
  • Compliance guidelines and recommendations for dealing with this rapidly evolving area of the law
