Harassment Prevention & Compliance
Anti-harassment policies are both a sword and shield: a sword to prevent or stop harassment and a shield to protect your company from liability. Our labor and employment attorneys draft anti-harassment policies designed to prevent workplace harassment and encourage employees to raise concerns through an internal grievance process so that you can attempt to resolve such concerns before they escalate to litigation.
We conduct anti-harassment training of business owners and management personnel to help them develop the skills to prevent, identify, and respond effectively to workplace harassment. We also conduct training for rank-and-file personnel to raise awareness of and eradicate inappropriate conduct, provide employees with tools to resolve their concerns without the need for litigation or intervention by an administrative agency, and give you a more viable defense to certain types of harassment claims.
When internal harassment complaints are made, we assist employers in investigating and resolving those complaints. We also offer counsel and advice designed to help prevent future complaints from arising.
