Event description

Description

HR Matters is a bi-monthly HR forum for business owners, HR managers, directors and employees responsible for personnel issues, who work in any sector.

Fiona Martin, director and head of employment law at Martin Searle Solicitors, coordinates HR Matters and promotes best practice.

This Session

How to avoid and deal with sexual harassment in the workplace

Sexual harassment in the workplace has been the talking point throughout 2017 and 2018. #MeToo spread virally as a hashtag to highlight how widespread sexual harassment in the workplace is and to encourage women to speak out.

Employment lawyers are now dealing with complex claims, often involving the police. It is vital that business owners and HR take complaints of sexual harassment seriously and carry out a thorough investigation.

This session will help employers:

  • ensure that they protect their employees against harassment and allegations of harassment
  • promote a culture based on equality and respect
  • educate their workforce on expected behaviours
  • provide examples of recent cases to highlight preventative steps that can be taken.

Booking

The event will be held at our Brighton Office from 9.15am to 11.15pm on Thursday 17 May.

Events are free for members. Membership costs £25 per year to cover refreshments. Membership invoices will be issued upon your second HR Matters meeting and are to be paid by cash on the day.
