Although headlines in recent years have brought an increased focus to sexual harassment generally, sexual harassment in workplace has continued to be a problem for employers, including associations. Virtual workplaces resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic have created a unique set of challenges to associations’ efforts to maintain a workplace free of sexual harassment. This webinar will discuss what forms unlawful sexual harassment may potentially occur in the virtual workplace, what an association’s obligations are under the law, and the steps associations can take to minimize potential liabilities stemming from claims of sexual harassment arising from the virtual workplace. Through an application of real-life examples, we will discuss best practices, explore common pitfalls, and highlight areas of particular risk to associations.

This online seminar features facilitated audio content and conversations. Soon after registering, attendees will receive login information from Zoom. Participants will have access to the recorded session, reference materials, and more for up to 30 days following the program.
