In Spring 2018, the LSO's SPOT Team (Steps, Progress, Opportunities, and Tactics) reported on incidences of discrimination and harassment confronting articling students (and others) within legal workplaces. This report highlighted the need for greater education among lawyers and paralegals about these issues, even as the #MeToo movement reverberates throughout different sectors of Canadian society. Our presenters explore what you need to know to ensure that your law or legal practice, government office, or in-house counsel workplace is equipped to identify, prevent, and effectively respond to harassment and discrimination. They also take you through real-life scenarios that help you engage with and discuss tools to successfully manage your practice in light of these concerns.
  • Discuss workplace culture and environment
  • Receive tips on best practices when advancing a preventative approach
  • Explore various policies and guidelines that ensure procedural fairness
  • Learn how to implement proper procedures for intervention
