Overview (Program Summary)
The #MeToo movement has had a global impact and caused employers to take a fresh look at their practices, from training, managing complaints and global investigations, to re-thinking their approaches to managing confidentiality on exit. In Europe, legal changes are in progress which will restrict the use of NDAs and confidentiality agreements, impacting the purpose and value of those agreements for employers. For multinational employers, navigating the procedural protections of employees in multiple jurisdictions can be a nightmare.
The panel will share their experiences in managing #MeToo investigations and settlements across multiple countries and on the use of NDAs and confidentiality agreements in particular given the increasingly restrictive environment in Europe. They will also look both at managing legal risk, and also commercial and PR factors at local level.
This webinar is intended for In-house counsel, HR and benefits managers, with international responsibilities, particularly in Europe.
