Crowne Plaza, King of Prussia
In the past ten years, employment litigation has increased 450%. It is one of the fastest
areas growing in the law, and the #METOO epidemic only promises to increase or, at the
very least, sustain this trend. The Internet can inform employees about every right they
have; and social media can broadcast every perceived wrong they have experienced. In
this environment, employers need to be alert, educated and prepared.
The right training program is the most-cost effective way to proactively prevent issues of
sexual harassment. Since the #METOO movement has started, many legislatures have
acted swiftly to enact laws mandating live sexual harassment training, finding on-line
courses to be ineffective.
Join us for a presentation that provides an overview of
the #METOO movement and the highlights of her interactive sexual harassment training
program. The innovative training that Christina can provide to your employees is solutionbased
and practical, featuring experiential learning, real time interactive survey tools and
storytelling scenarios. The program educates in plain English on the applicable laws and
regulations, and what the applicable laws mean in today’s new world where #METOO
has blurred the lines of acceptable (legal) behavior and unacceptable, harassing
behavior. This unique training experience encourages collaborative conversation, longterm
learning and risk reduction, and will meet your team where they are on these issues.
Participants in the complete training program will walk away from the program with a clear
understanding of how current employment laws affect them, and what is and is not
acceptable behavior, as well as how to voice concerns and complaints.
