Thursday, March 8, 2018 {ml-event-to} Saturday, March 10, 2018

Labor and employment partner Sarah E. Bouchard will moderate the discussion "ADR in the Wake of the #MeToo Movement: What is the Future of Mandatory Arbitration and Mediation of Sexual Harassment Claims in the Workplace?" at the Conflict Prevention & Resolution 2018 Annual Meeting.

The panel of corporate defense, plaintiffs’ bar, and government agencies will discuss the impact the #MeToo movement is having on the arbitration and mediation of sexual harassment claims brought by employees and explore creative ways companies can use ADR to resolve these disputes without sacrificing the ability of victims to stand together, the accountability and justice the #MeToo movement has shown is necessary to end the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment in the workplace.
