During this presentation (which will take place shortly after the Georgia runoff elections that will determine the composition of the Senate) we will discuss what employers should be preparing for under a Biden-Harris administration.

The topic of harassment, and sexual harassment in particular, has become an increasing concern for employers – not only in regard to their own personal behavior but also regarding the overall reputation of their organization as a harassment-free workplace.
