“Women who accuse men, particularly powerful men, of harassment are often confronted with the reality of the men’s sense that they are more important than women, as a group.”
― Anita Hill, Speaking Truth to Power
Join us for a candid discussion regarding the new era for sexual harassment in the workplace. In this webinar, led by attorney Kelly Armstrong, you'll learn:
• How to identify sexual harassment
• Your legal rights
• What to do if it happens.
Sexual harassment survivors – women and men – need to know how to safely speak up, and know that their raised voices can help tear down systemic barriers to women’s advancement.
California is a leader in sexual harassment protection for employees and provides guidance for progressive sexual harassment policies and procedures. New regulations enacted in 2017 include actual legal requirements for creating a confidential complaint process, timely response, impartial and timely investigations by qualified personnel, documentation and tracking for reasonable progress, options for remedial actions and resolutions and timely closure.
Employers are also required to provide a complaint mechanism so employees do not need to complain directly to their supervisor including a complaint hotline, access to an ombudsperson and identification of the local state agency and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
