Effective Responses to Sexual Misconduct and Harassment Complaints Workshop

An increasing number of organizations are being rocked by allegations of harassment and sexual misconduct by their employees. Often these allegations are broadcast on social media, catching organizations flat-footed and unprepared.

Join Field Law's Labour and Employment Group for a comprehensive one-day seminar that will address the following important questions:

  • How can organizations respond effectively when facing these allegations?
  • How can organizations manage the risk and complexity of these complaints and establish processes that are fair and appropriate for both complainants and those accused of misconduct?
  • What are the pitfalls to avoid in the investigative process? 
  • How can organizations manage the legal and reputational risk?  
  • What must organizations do to promote the necessary cultural change?  
  • What are the issues to be managed following the investigation? 
  • What should organizations be doing on a pro-active basis to address these issues?

Presenters will include Field Law lawyers who help organizations navigate these challenging issues, an investigator with a wealth of experience, and public relations professionals with significant experience in advising organizations facing these issues.

   This workshop has been pre-approved by CPHR Alberta for 6 CPD hours.

Due to space restrictions, each organization will be limited to three registrants.
