Sexual Harassment on the Shop Floor 
Presented by Tyler Hendry and E. Katherine Hajjar

Time’s 2017 Person of the Year issue celebrated the “Silence Breakers” – the thousands that bravely came forward to share harrowing stories of sexual assault and harassment, and who, in the process, created a global movement. 

This movement has made a powerful impact in the workplace, prompting employers in almost every industry to meaningfully evaluate the effectiveness of their policies and examine conditions present within the workplace culture to ensure that the workplace is a safe and professional environment for all workers.

This webinar will focus on the unique challenges faced by the manufacturing industry in effectively responding to this movement.  Specifically, it will cover:

  • Immediate and long-term initiatives to consider 
  • Proactive training recommendations
  • Methods to evaluate and alter the workplace culture
  • Recent New York State and New York City sexual harassment legislation
  • Conducting investigations
  • Communication strategies for managing publicity
  • Special considerations in unionized environments
