Overview of the webinar

Sexual harassment claims increasingly expose your organization to significant business, financial, and human resources related costs and liabilities.  Potential claims now often exceed six-figure numbers. More importantly, sexual harassment increases recruitment and hiring costs, increases absenteeism and turnover costs, lowers employee morale, reduces job performance, and results in lost productivity.As a result, if your company has a 6% profit margin, it will have to generate $1,667,000 in new sales to cover the costs of each sexual harassment claim or award of $100,000.  

Thus, while the financial liabilities of sexual harassment can be substantial, they represent only a part of the total cost.To the extent sexual harassment defines how your organization values its employees, your organization increasingly becomes a place to avoid.To the extent your organization accepts of sexual harassment as an incidental working condition, you tell employees, applicants, and third parties: we don’t value you. And to the extent your organization does not take immediate action to correct problems, you demonstrate that they should look for employment elsewhere. 

Who should attend?

  • HR Professionals
  • Internal and external auditors

Why should you attend?

The marketplace is increasingly asking and evaluating the following critical questions:

  • Does the organization avoid the growing legal pitfalls to avoid sexual harassment
  • Does the organization properly conduct sexual harassment and workplace investigations
  • Does the organization properly weight and balance privacy issues and concerns
  • Are all employees encouraged to report incidents of sexual harassment; are all supervisors and managers required to take action and report incidents

These critical issues and other important elements of an effective sexual harassment program will be discussed.
