The #MeToo movement has galvanized the public conversation around sexual assault and harassment. But this broader conversation is not a substitute for the kind of meaningful interoffice dialogue needed to raise employer/employee consciousness at all levels. The fact remains that – while media coverage has focused on individual perpetrators – the institutions and organizations who fail to intervene are held liable and often bear the brunt of legal costs. Now, more than ever, employers need to establish clear parameters and implement prevention and remediation protocols. Join us for a one-hour webinar on sexual harassment in the #MeToo era. Amy Wilson and Tessa Castner – members of FBT’s Labor & Employment Practice Group – will discuss sexual harassment from a legal standpoint, guide participants through hypothetical situations, and outline the necessary steps for preventing, identifying, and effectively addressing sexual misconduct in the workplace.
Amy Wilson focuses on employment litigation and employer counseling and has represented numerous employers in single plaintiff as well as class and collective action litigation claims under Title VII, the ADEA, the ADAAA, the FMLA, the FLSA, covenants not to compete, wage and EPL claims, among other federal and state employment laws. In addition, she counsels employers on all aspects of the employer-employee relationship, providing management and employee training and drafting handbooks, agreements, policies, and procedures.
