With the emergence of the #MeToo movement, the numbers of sexual harassment claims brought against companies across all industries have exploded. This session will discuss steps that employers can take now to identify and mitigate their risks for sexual harassment claims in the workplace. Attorneys will share best practices for companies to follow when developing and implementing effective anti-harassment policies and procedures. The presenters will also address implications for offering COBRA and severance benefits, as well as the key tax considerations, relating to how employers might settle sexual harassment claims with former employees.
