Sexual Harassment in the workplace is not new. 
What’s shifted is the level of tolerance and a growing call for retribution and consequences.

2018 will be a record year for sexual harassment complaints, firings, and lawsuits. Is your organization ready?
  • Will your online training or employee handbook be enough? 
  • Are your compliance audits sufficient?
  • How will you handle false accusations and the victims of this reverse harassment? 
This webinar will address how to evaluate your current culture and design a proactive and strategic approach to preparing your workforce.  The webinar will be relevant for both private and public companies, non-profits, academia and governmental organizations.

$5,000. That's the average price-tag of each harassment complaint that results in an EEOC investigation. Furthermore, the cost can be as high as $85,000 per incident. According to a recent EEOC report, 2017 saw a 1600 case increase and $136 Million dollars more ordered to be paid out than the highest payout year before. That's an average of $85,000 per case.

In 2017, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigated 99,109 cases of discrimination and harassment charges and ordered $484 Million be paid out.

If recent verdicts are an indication of what's to come, the existence of an anti-harassment policy, or "check the box" training is no longer sufficient. The courts are now focused on implementation and enforcement.
