Same-Sex Harassment webinar

Know what courts and the EEOC look for

By

The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present Same-Sex Harassment on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, at 10:00 AM CST.

“Boys will be boys” is no longer an acceptable reaction to complaints of hazing, horseplay and name-calling. Same-sex harassment does not have to be based on sexual desire to be unlawful. In this webinar, we will discuss some of the emerging issues involving same-sex harassment as well as basics on how employers should handle these complaints in order to limit their liability. We will discuss:

  • How same-sex harassment cases evolved;
  • What an employee has to show in order to win;
  • Examples of same-sex harassment cases that do not involve sexual desire;
  • Construction Company cases where the employer messed up; and
  • How employers can limit their liability.
