    Title: Effective Workplace Training and Investigations in the #Me Too Era

    Presenters: Deb Weiss Ford

    This practical and interactive training will focus on how to conduct effective workplace training for managers and employees.  From 2012-2016, the EEOC received more than 12,000 charges of sex-based harassment each and every year.  In 2017, the explosion of sex-based charges has caused widespread concern in companies throughout the country.

    The EEOC has replied that many company anti-harassment trainings are ineffective.

    This timely seminar will address the persistent and pervasive problem of harassment in the workplace and focus on how to do effective training.  The seminar will also discuss how to properly do an investigation as many employers are unaware of best practices for an effective investigation which could insulate an employer from liability.
