Webinar - Love is a Battlefield: The Intersection of Workplace Romance and Sexual Harassment

From SLMA’s Employment Counsel at Wimberly, Lawson, Steckel, Schneider & Stine, PC.:

When: Friday, November 4th, 2022

12:00 PM to 12:45 PM EDT

An employer cannot stop employees from developing romantic relationships at work, but it can manage those relationships so that they do not turn into sexual harassment claims. 

In this Webinar, we will discuss the types of written policies and procedures a company can implement to prevent legal claims and minimize unnecessary distractions in the workplace. Because hell hath no fury like a woman—or man—scorned by a workplace romance.
