Title Description

Workplace Discrimination and Harassment— Sexual and Otherwise

Sexual harassment cases have dominated the legal landscape of workplace harassment issues for the last two decades. More recently, older workers, African-American workers, Hispanic workers and members of other protected groups have joined the battle against workplace discrimination. Race, age or religious harassment charges can result in costly defense and the jury verdicts. This workshop will provide an overview of discrimination laws and a discussion of the concepts of disparate treatment and disparate impact. It will attempt to provide practical guidance for avoiding these types of problems.
