Sexual harassment and pay equity claims are receiving increased attention in the workplace, by enforcement agencies and in the media. The calls to action spurred on by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are shining a spotlight on how employers handle gender equality in the workplace. Colleges and universities should audit their practices now to ensure they are well positioned to identify, address and defend against sexual harassment allegations. This includes having robust anti-harassment and anti-retaliation policies, effectively distributing them through the organization, training on their use and implications, and proactively understanding and addressing legal risk areas.
In addition to exploring these measures, this webinar will examine the impact of recent federal and state fair pay legislation on higher education and discuss best practices colleges and universities can follow to proactively identify and address pay inequity.
