Workplace Harassment is Timely Subject of February 20, 2018 Industry Webinar

Workplace Harassment Webinar:

The Climate Has Changed - What Every Printing Firm Must Do Now!

 

Now is the time to review your company’s policies and procedures on workplace harassment!

Over the past few months, we have all heard detailed news accounts of high profile and shocking incidents of workplace harassment. Heightened media coverage and the #MeToo movement continue to shine a spotlight on this serious problem. Workplace harassment claims often blind-side employers. They are high-risk, expensive, and perhaps the most difficult to defend of all employment related lawsuits.  Particularly frustrating for an employer is that, despite repeated attempts at educating their workforces about policies and legal requirements, something is getting lost in the translation. Even workers that have undergone harassment training many times cannot seem to apply the rules to their everyday work lives. The result is unacceptable workplace conduct, lawsuits, and significant liability exposure.

On February 20, 2018 at 12:00 PM (ET), a consortium of regional and national printing trade associations will be conducting an important webinar on this timely topic. Sponsoring organizations include Printing Industries Alliance, PPI, PGAMA, PICA, PINE, GAA, PIAG and Idealliance. This webinar, entitled “Workplace Harassment: The Climate Has Changed! What Every Printing Firm Must Do Now!” will address this “lost in translation” frustration for employers.   The webinar is being conducted by the experienced employment attorneys of Ferrara Fiorenza PC who will present a unique and innovative perspective on this topic, along with practical and meaningful harassment law compliance strategies.

Webinar topics include:

•    The challenging and ever-changing nature of harassment law.  From its origins in federal case law in the 1980s to the present, the definition of harassment has continued to evolve. Compliance has become a moving target. Perhaps the greatest challenge for both employers and their employees is following the difficult to decipher “code of workplace conduct” made necessary by the law. The presenters will decipher the code for you.

•    A practical and useful explanation of harassment. Put the typical legal jargon aside – it’s not helping! Our webinar will offer participants an easy-to-understand and apply spectrum of behaviors that the law prohibits. Period.  The broad range of that spectrum may surprise you.

•    Best practices in this new climate. The foundation of any employer’s compliance program is a strong anti- harassment policy, comprehensive training and the ability to apply a policy’s written word effectively.  Our program will explore the EEOC’s current compliance rules and provide meaningful strategies for investigating complaints; reaching proper conclusions (even in “he-said, she-said” scenarios); taking appropriate remedial action; and preventing retaliation.

All registrants also receive the detailed Ferrara Fiorenza “Workplace Harassment Desk Book” (via email). This timely resource provides a comprehensive guide to addressing and minimizing harassment risk, including a step-by-step investigation strategy.

Who Should Attend?  Owners, top managers, human resources staff, trainers and others associated with the development of strategies for managing people in your organization.
