Description:

Social media launched “#MeToo” and started a conversation with over 8.7 million users.  When sexual harassment happens in the workplace, HR professionals need to take action. Attend this session for: (1) a candid, interactive discussion about sexual harassment following the screening of a video with harassment content that is meant to generate discussion and reaction, (2) a brief overview of the current state of sexual harassment case law in Minnesota since the onset of the “#MeToo” movement and how it has changed, if at all; and (3) clear guidance on how employers can improve their employee harassment policies and update and improve their harassment training sessions.
