This 41-page Executive Report for attorneys and employers features simple steps to take when defending a sexual harassment case in the workplace. Described are the critical precautionary measures to assist employers in providing a harassment-free work environment and the proper procedures to remedy a situation once a complaint of harassment has been received. From the time of the administrative filing to settlement or trial, employers are advised to weigh the pros and cons of settlement versus trial while taking into consideration the public scrutiny of a trial. Top labor attorneys share their insights on when employers should contact an attorney, the type of conduct that results in sexual harassment claims, the type of discovery that should be taken, and questions an attorney should answer before determining a strategy for defense. Throughout this Executive Report employers are reminded of the protection that is afforded to them by the law when they have a strong sexual harassment policy and procedure in place. Concluding this Executive Report is a research guide that provides relevant case law and rules and a helpful list of suggested references. Charts are provided for an easy-to-follow overview of the maximum awards based on the number of employers and the specific questions to ask when defending a sexual harassment suit depending on whether it is a quid pro quo or a hostile work environment situation.
