Masterclass: #MeToo – Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Collingwood Legal would like to invite you to our Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Masterclass to be held on 15 November 2018 at Kingston Park Stadium.  The high profile “#MeToo” campaign has been headline news in both mainstream media and social media platforms for many months now.

Our Masterclass will provide attendees with a clear, user-friendly analysis of the law together with practical guidance on how to implement workplace policies which will encourage respectful behaviour and which will provide a solid foundation for dealing with the perpetrators of sexual harassment in an effective and safe way from a legal perspective.

Paul Johnstone (Partner) and Alexandra Besnard (Senior Associate) will be discussing the legal landscape regulating sexual harassment in the workplace including tips to help protect employees and employers create and maintain a respectful workplace culture and deal with sexual harassment issues with confidence and sensitivity. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in interactive discussions to consider factual case studies in a workshop setting.

The aim of this Masterclass will be to give all attendees a better understanding of:

  • The Equality Act definition of sexual harassment;
  • Acceptable and unacceptable behaviours which should help employers avoid being accused of sexual harassment;
  • The employer and employee duties and responsibilities under employment law;
  • How to deal with “difficult” grievance and disciplinary issues that may arise;
  • How workplace policies and training can reduce the risk of legal liability.
