Corporate America is experiencing a massive cultural shift as more and more employees are going public with sexual harassment complaints. Lawsuits have been continuously growing following the high-profile scandals in the widespread news media.

This forum will address how to assess your risk and protect your organization and boards against possible lawsuits and reputational damage.

Additionally, we'll discuss steps you can take to properly handle cases as they arise. These practices can also be useful in prevention and protection against other employment practice liabilities such as racial discrimination and wrongful firing claims.
