Description
The impact of the #MeToo movement has been profound and is still resonating throughout all facets of society. More than ever, victims of harassment are empowered to seek justice through legal recourse and remedies. What does this mean for legal practitioners? Our presenters are informed by a diversity of experiences and perspectives, and they explore the pros and cons of various legal avenues for pursuing harassment cases on behalf of clients, ultimately laying out strategies to consider as the social landscape continues to shift. In addition, they go over available options for redress in cases of harassment within the legal community.
  • Hear about the unique role that the Law Society’s Discrimination and Harassment Counsel plays in addressing harassment
  • Learn best practices for promoting a safe and harassment-free workplace
  • Examine the opportunities presented by - and potential pitfalls - of workplace harassment investigations
