Navigating Workplace Harassment Issues in the #MeToo Era – Singapore

Monday, March 19, 2018

Join us for a discussion of the current environment; suggestions to get ahead of potential issues, including putting in place appropriate grievance procedures; and best practices for responding to claims of harassment.

Media reports of workplace sexual harassment and sexual assault by high-profile individuals and high-level executives in the United States have captured the public’s attention. The #MeToo movement, focused on sexual harassment and discrimination, has led to more and more women sharing their experiences and has encouraged employees to speak out. As a result, employers are taking a more proactive approach to reviewing/implementing harassment policies and grievance procedures to ensure they have appropriate response plans in place, including an investigation and PR strategy in the event of a workplace harassment crisis.

Is your organization fully prepared to respond to allegations of workplace harassment and the potential PR fallout? What steps can leaders take to ensure safe and inclusive workplaces? Grace Speights along with Morgan Lewis Stamford lawyers will be sharing on this topic.
