Overview

Allegations of sexual harassment can arise in any workplace, at any time – and when they do, a poorly executed response can lead to significant liability. Ensuring your organization’s incident response strategy is effective will keep you in control of the situation and minimize the potential harms that can result. Join peers from other organizations and participate in a workshop to apply what you know in theory to a practical problem.

This session is suitable as a stand-alone experience but also acts as a great add-on to our substantive introduction session. Click here to learn more about our Sexual Harassment Incident Response Training: Theory and Practice (Part 1).

Tabletop Exercise

Your new hire is alleging that they were sexually harassed by the VP of Sales Canada at an industry event – and before you can investigate, the incident goes viral. You know how to run an investigation, but how will you manage everything else about the incident? And what happens when things don’t go as expected?

Format

A panel of Hicks Morley lawyers will facilitate this session as you work through a series of escalating facts to develop and execute a strategy. You will also view a video on key best practices from outside crises communications expert Karen Gordon (Gordon Strategy) to help you learn to minimize and manage public relations and potential reputational harms – or avoid these issues altogether.

This webinar will include an interactive Q&A feature. A panel discussion will be built into the last 10 minutes of the session to address audience questions that were submitted.

Hicks Morley will endeavour to accommodate guests with a disability in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code guidelines and other applicable legislation.
