Thomas Ryan, Esq. and Michael Darbee, Esq. of Laddey, Clark and Ryan, LLP will be hosting a Discrimination and Harassment Employment Seminar on Tuesday June 20th, 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Rockaway, NJ from 8:30am – 11:30am.
U.S. employers paid out over $770 million annually to settle claims of discrimination and harassment. Approximately 1,486 wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment claims are filed by disgruntled employees every day. The average length of an employment lawsuit is 2 1/2 years from complaint to settlement. Given these statistics, you cannot afford failing to have policies in place to prevent discrimination and harassment in the workplace. This seminar will ensure that you will be prepared if an employee comes to you with a complaint or if you uncover wrongdoing in your workplace. Learn how to properly handle complaints of discrimination and harassment when they occur.
This seminar will cover the different types of harassment and the elements of each; the standard for determining whether conduct constitutes as discrimination or harassment; Employer liability, individual liability, and vicarious liability for harassment by third parties; why your policy should include harassment training for employees and supervisors; establishing an effective complaint or grievance process; how to take immediate and appropriate action when an employee complains; the importance of prompt investigations; and how to conduct an investigation of a sexual harassment complaint.
