The recent wave of #MeToo claims has had far-reaching ripple effects for employers of all sizes in numerous industries. The trend has not only resulted in a flood of sexual harassment and gender discrimination claims in the workplace, but it has caused employers and lawmakers to re-examine the structural inequities and hidden assumptions that have allowed such behaviors to continue into the twenty-first century. The use of mediation can help employers heal the wounds of workplace harassment and discrimination, as well as to take a more proactive approach to resolving issues internally before they become lawsuits. In this half-day program, two distinguished panels of employment attorneys and mediators will explore the nuances of, and different approaches to mediating sexual harassment and gender discrimination claims in the workplace.
