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

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insight and advice from a practitioner on the “front lines” of an issue important to employers of all sizes and industry.
