As we know, within our public relations industry, it is critically important that we provide our employees with workplaces that are safe, and respectful for all employees. It seems as if these days you can’t tune in to news reporting without another story on the subject where someone or some place has gone terribly wrong. Please join us on January 10th at the offices of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC, for a presentation followed by a discussion on Creating & Maintaining a Respectful Workplace Environment.
Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC’s Wendy Stryker, employment law specialist and counsel to the Employment and Litigation Groups will lead us through the subject and cover:
-Background on this topic;
-Sexual harassment workplace laws;
-Several timely case studies;
-Managing properly in times of social media;
-Creative work environments where work surrounds sensitive topics;
-among other areas.
As part of our SHEQUALITY initiative, we plan to bring more educational information on this topic and other related topics to our Membership. Please stay tuned for more to come.
