Join our expert attorneys as they discuss how employers can work to prevent and eliminate sexual harassment and violence in their workplace, and create an environment in which employees are able to respond to and report incidents without fear of retaliation. Not only is there a deep moral imperative to rectify sexual harassment in the workplace and promote an equitable work environment, but also there is significant monetary liability as a potential consequence for employers who fail to address harassment in the workplace.
