    The subject of Sexual Harassment raises all sorts of emotions in people.  Since 1993 when the high profile Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas sexual harassment issue hit the national news, there has been increased awareness of the problems associated with Sexual Harassment in the Workplace. Recent issues surrounding bullying, cyberbullying, workplace relationships, and political scandals have again brought the public to a new awareness.  Unfortunately, along with that awareness, there have been myths, untruths, and misunderstandings about things such as what sexual harassment is (and isn’t), legal issues surrounding liability for harassment claims, methods for properly resolving claims, and personal reaction to harassment situations. 

    During this session, participants will explore the actual results of several actual harassment claims, and discuss the legal, moral and practical ramifications of each of them. Participants will have opportunity to provide feedback and opinion, and will leave the session with a firm understanding of the facts and application of laws, policies and common sense toward maintaining a respectful and safe workplace.
