How to Properly Deal with Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

About the Seminar

Overview

Sexual Harassment is perhaps the most difficult labor complaint that the management has to address in the workplace. It is an offense which is usually witnessed only by the offender and the victim. As a result, it becomes a fight between the word of the victim and that of the offender. It can be very difficult to resolve. With serious fines and penalties for failing to properly respond and act on a sexual harassment complaint, how should the management deal with issues on sexual harassment in the workplace? By observing Best Legal Practices, the management can avoid and prevent issues on sexual harassment from happening.

Objective

The primary aim of the seminar is to teach and train entrepreneurs and business managers on how best to avoid sexual harassment in the workplace, as well as how to properly respond when a complaint is made. Further, best legal practices will be taught to provide them with the legal knowledge, skills, and techniques on how best to apply what they’ve learned in the seminar.

Who Should Participate

The seminar is designed for entrepreneurs and business managers with family businesses and who are keen on improving their legal knowledge and skills, as well as those who want to learn best legal practices to protect their companies from sexual harassment lawsuits and liabilities.
