Managing in the #MeToo Era: The Latest Legal Developments and Their Implications for Hospitality Employers

Program Number: 2852

Program Date: 11/15/2018

Description

The #MeToo era is in full swing, and it shows no signs of abating anytime soon. For a host of reasons, the hospitality industry is a particularly vulnerable target of the movement, along with #TimesUp, #MeToo’s sister campaign, which is largely focused on providing sophisticated legal assistance to lower-wage workers with sex harassment claims. In addition, significant new and pending changes to New York State and New York City law—including the “Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act,” which takes effect on October 9, 2018—will impose substantial burdens on hospitality employers, making it all the more important that they have the most effective practices in place to prevent and respond to sex harassment in the workplace
