presented at a Lexology webinar "The New Sexual Revolution: Radical Changes to US Harassment Laws" on September 24, 2019.
The sexual harassment foundation you have known for 30 years – and upon which all your in-house training, HR policies, and legal and HR instincts are built – is in the process of being neatly demolished by a wave of new and proposed legislation that turns established standards of employer liability on their head. The webinar explained these sweeping changes and explore the impact on employers operating in the United States, including:
- Changes to the law
- Proposed legislation
- Impact on employer policies
- Proposed best practices to reduce new forms of liability
