Course Description:
Last year, the high-profile claims of sexual harassment and assault started in Hollywood, the media and politics. But no industry is free from harassment; it is a pervasive and persistent scourge, and we now see a material increase in internal and external sexual harassment/#metoo claims in virtually every industry.

Every employer needs to ensure that those who are responsible for internal investigations have received training on what are often very difficult investigations. For example, while employers must take every compliant seriously and treat all complainants with respect, employers also need to make sure the rights of the accused are considered, too.

This seminar provides an overview of key issues to consider in investigating sexual and other harassment claims. Particular attention will be paid to:
  • when to investigate;
  • who should investigate
  • whether the investigation should be privileged and, if so, how should it be structured;
  • questions to ask (and to be avoided)
  • determination of credibility
  • documentation of investigatory process, including conclusory findings of finding;
  • appropriate corrective action (prompt and proportionate) without necessarily admitting legal liability;
  • prevention and correction of retaliation and more.

Particular attention will be paid throughout the program to “in the moment” responses to events leading up to investigations and in the context of investigations themselves. After lunch, the program will conclude with 90 minutes of role-playing based on “not-so-hypothetical” hypotheticals.
