CalChamber Webinar: Critical Steps After Harassment Investigation

You’ve worked closely with your legal department to investigate a harassment complaint, taken corrective action and disciplined the harasser. So why are your employees spreading rumors, and why is the employee who filed the initial complaint now filing a second one alleging retaliation?

A harassment complaint often affects many more people than the harasser and the victim—and an investigation focused solely on whether the harassment occurred overlooks disruption to the workplace caused by the initial harassment and the subsequent investigation.

The California Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a live 60-minute webinar on September 17 covering critical steps to “heal the workplace” by implementing a Healing Process Protocol.

Special Guest Presenters

Moderator Erika Frank, CalChamber vice president, legal affairs and general counsel, will join special guest presenters Ann Noel, Esq., Noel Workplace Consulting, and Stephen F. Anderson, president, Anderson-davis, Inc.

Both presenters are top experts in sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. They bring varied and extensive experience about what can go right but often goes wrong with workplace investigations and their resolution.

Noel was the California Fair Employment and Housing Commission’s executive officer through the end of 2012.

Anderson has designed and delivered live theatre-based workplace harassment investigations training since 1987.

Webinar Details

The “Whew! Harassment Investigation Done – Or Is It?” webinar will run from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 17. The cost is $99 for the public and free for CalChamber members.
