Workplace Discrimination and Misconduct –  Employer Responsibilities and Liabilities 

While over a year has passed since the start of the #MeToo movement, the conversation continues regarding how employers must address workplace misconduct.  Some of this conduct may include sexual harassment or interactions that impact genders or other nationalities.  Employers must understand how to promptly and effectively deal with issues that involve federal and state harassment, discrimination laws and other related misconduct.
Maureen Pomeroy, an employment attorney with over 20 years experience will provide attendees an interactive and informative discussion on legal updates and best practices with handling certain workplace conduct. She will also provide some tips on handling effective investigations and what issues may require an employer to hire an outside investigator for certain discrimination and harassment matters. Ms. Pomeroy will also provide tips on effectively training workforces and implementing new or changes to existing policies.
