Tampa, FL – Attorneys Lisa McGlynn and Brett Owens from the Tampa office of Fisher Phillips presented valuable information at a recent breakfast briefing hosted at the firm. Titled “Sexual Harassment and Bullying in the Workplace,” the seminar offered advice for employers in dealing with the recent scrutiny of sexual harassment.
The session explored how the many high-profile sexual harassment and bullying claims has made it a necessity for employers to re-focus attention on these important issues. In addition to the continued importance of having a workplace of dignity and respect, now that allegations of harassment and bullying can quickly go viral and cause devastating results both inside and outside of the workplace, policies and proactive measures can reduce the consequences. The seminar provided insight about where the line exists for illegal harassment and bullying, what to do when faced with “he said/she said allegations,” and how to respond to allegations regarding incidents that occurred years ago.
The program is part of Fisher Phillips’ on-going breakfast briefing series that offers employers news they need to navigate the changing workforce environment.
