When #MeToo Means #YouToo: KJK’s Gilmore and Mooney Present Free Webinar on Responding to Sexual Harassment Claims

The #MeToo movement has many employers uncertain about the best ways to protect themselves from sexual harassment complaints and the right way to respond after a complaint has been made. KJK’s Rob Gilmore and Kirsten Mooney will address what employers should know about this timely topic in a free webinar titled “When #MeToo Means #YouToo: What to do when you’re in the sexual harassment hot seat” on Wednesday, May 2, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern.

Webinar participants will gain insights into such issues as:

  • How our definitions of sexual harassment have evolved in the age of #MeToo and the misconceptions that have formed around this issue
  • What the law says about sexual harassment as compared to public opinion of its definition
  • What to do if your company receives a complaint of sexual harassment
  • Why simply creating new policies and instituting new training are not enough for a company to adequately prepare for sexual harassment claims
  • How sexual harassment can create potential liability not only with employees but also with vendors, clients and subcontractors
  • Concrete recommendations of the steps employers must take to understand the situation and take appropriate action
  • How to create a workplace where employees feel comfortable bringing their concerns forward, allowing executives to address problems promptly before they escalate
