#MeToo has hit headlines around the world and organisations are coming under significant pressure to ensure that they deal with allegations of sexual harassment properly. Clients are turning to their solicitors for help and guidance both with their internal policies and communication of their values and standards as well as the way to deal with allegations of harassment when they are raised.

In addition, solicitors themselves need to be aware of the issues involved as many of the highest profile complaints in recent times have been raised against law firms and legal departments.

This course will provide attendees with an understanding of the key issues to be aware of when advising clients about sexual harassment issues.

  • What is sexual harassment?
  • How to review internal policies
  • What to do if your client is faced with a complaint of sexual harassment
  • How to investigate complaints and produce an outcome report
  • Dealing with tricky issues such as suspension and witness anonymity
  • Resolving complaints both internally and at tribunal
  • The event begins at 2pm. Delegate registration is open from 1:30pm.
