We’re two-thirds of the way through 2019, and companies continue to allocate significant portions of their legal budgets to addressing #MeToo and issues relating to sexual harassment in the workplace.
This isn’t going away any time soon.
Six states and one locality (NYC) have passed laws requiring sexual harassment training in the private sector. Others are contemplating mandatory training or mandate training for public employees.
My FisherBroyles, LLP employment law partner, Jessica Brown Wilson, supports businesses that either proactively educate their workforce about these issues or train them because that’s what the law requires. Recently, Jessica was a guest on the IR Digital podcast episode: “#MeToo Part I: How to create a sexual harassment policy.”
The episode is about 30 minutes, it’s free, and I encourage you to listen (here).
