In 1986, more than 20 years after the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the United States Supreme Court in Meritor Savings Bank v. Vinson first recognized sexual harassment as a form of discrimination on the basis of sex.

In 2017, more than 30 years after that landmark decision, claims of sexual harassment in the workplace are still grabbing headlines and ending the careers of stars such as Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, and Harvey Weinstein just to name a few. The law prohibiting sexual harassment has not changed but the focus has. Now is the time for all employers to remain vigilant about sexual harassment compliance and about protecting their employees. Some say “there’s no such thing as bad publicity.” But, when it comes to sexual harassment, that saying couldn’t be further from the truth.

During this webcast, we will recap the history of the speak-out evolution; examine the EEOC’s position; and discuss steps employers should take now to ensure they have preventative practices in place to prevent harassment in the workplace, and to address it meaningfully and effectively when and if it does occur.
