Barriers to Combatting Sexual Harassment In and Out of Court and Legislative Reponses in the #MeToo Moment

This webinar addresses the obstacles that plaintiffs face in bringing and prevailing on sexual harassment claims, including the applicable statutes of limitations, administrative exhaustion requirements, judicial interpretations of sexual harassment protections and application of the “severe or pervasive” legal standard, and common employer practices that fail to adequately prevent and respond to workplace harassment and limit employees’ ability to speak out and obtain relief. The panelists also provide an overview of legislative responses at the state and federal level in the current #MeToo moment.
