Topic:  Please Make It Stop: Confronting Harassment in the Social Media Age
Speaker:  Daniel Stern
                Dykema Cox Smith

It is not just about the hashtags like #MeToo, #TimesUp, #AllRaise and #MentorHer. The landscape for employers is changing as quickly as internet speeds allow. Not only is it a mistake for employers to fail to take claims of harassment seriously—even if the complaint seems to be “stale”—but employers need to be aware of other changes on the horizon. These changes are taking place through the courts, state and federal legislatures and popular culture.

The session will include a review of Supreme Court authority that may allow an employee to assert a harassment claim over incidents that happened years before. We will, of course, discuss effective policies, implementation of those policies and effective training techniques. More importantly, we will discuss the impact of technology in these situations, the impact of these issues on organizational development and the anticipated legal issues associated with such efforts, as well as the coaching that future claimants are receiving on how to assert successful claims. Another topic  to be discussed is how the recent amendments to the tax code may prevent employers from keeping settlements of harassment claims confidential.

Champagne Chicken served with Asparagus Risotto, Zucchini Medley Italian Style, Acacia Salad, rolls and butter. Carrot Cake will be served for dessert.
