Unfortunately, 2017-18 will most likely be remembered as the Year(s) of Sexual Harassment. Notwithstanding that AB 1825 mandated harassment prevention training in California in 2004, the statute was amended to require training on bullying and abusive conduct in 2015 (AB 2053), and recently to require training in 2018 on gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation (SB 396), harassment continues to permeate the workplace. Given the profound impact sexual harassment has on individuals and workplaces, it is time for change.

This presentation will address:

  • The need to reassess harassment prevention policies and training to ensure they are legally compliant, effective, and embraced;
  • Maintaining a workplace free of sexual harassment (as well as any other harassment and discrimination) where everyone feels safe and respected and understands that retaliation is unlawful;
  • The legal and practical considerations; and
  • How to: endorse a collaborative approach, stay ahead of this issue, and be game changers.
