Programs Included in this Bundle
  1. The Nuts & Bolts Of Litigating Harassment & Hostile Work Environment Claims, from NELA 2018 Fall Seminar
    Workplace harassment is not prohibited expressly by federal statute, and federal courts have been left to fill in the gaps regarding the legal standards that govern what constitutes unlawful conduct. As such, this area of the law can be quite complex, creating obstacles to vindicating the rights of those facing workplace harassment that are not present in other types of employment cases. Our advocates break down the components of a harassment case and identify the particular challenges—legal, factual, and practical—to litigating them effectively.

    This seminar includes the following components:
    • The Nuts & Bolts Of Litigating Harassment & Hostile Work Environment Claims - Audio
    • The Nuts & Bolts Of Litigating Harassment & Hostile Work Environment Claims - Paper

  2. Practical Considerations When Representing Clients In Harassment Cases, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    Representing a client in a harassment case requires special considerations that are different from other types of discrimination cases. This panel discusses the roadmap of a pre and current litigation on behalf of a harassment victim, including intake, considerations in deciding whether to represent a harassment victim, informing the client about the challenges of litigating a harassment case, dealing with treating doctors and the client’s potential pre-existing conditions, and preparing the client for their deposition.

  3. Using The Law Creatively To Find Justice For Workers Facing Harassment, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    In this time of #Metoo and #Timesup workers’ rights advocates have a unique opportunity to push for systemic change within the workplace for each and every case they handle, even where there is only one client. This panel discusses how to use negotiation before or during litigation to obtain broad systemic workplace changes, including training, policy revisions, and/or personnel changes. This period of broader cultural awareness may also provide opportunities to reframe existing legal standards in ways that can make them more reflective of the reality of our workplaces and more effective in achieving the goals and purposes of our employment laws.

  4. Meeting The Special Needs Of Clients Who Have Experienced Trauma, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    Working with clients who have experienced trauma, such as sexual assault or sexual harassment, requires special considerations. This panel offers practical advice from experts who understand the particular needs of individuals who have experienced trauma, and suggest ways to work with mental health professionals who are providing critical support to these clients. Our panelists also discuss counseling such clients during difficult phases of litigation, including depositions and mediation, while keeping in mind what is best for the client’s overall well-being.

  5. The Role Of Mediation In Resolving Workplace Harassment Claims, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    Mediation in harassment cases is often a welcome settlement process, but it can present unique challenges to both the client and lawyer. This panel of advocates and a member of the bench will discuss best practices for how to anticipate and handle some of the unique issues that can impact the mediation process and outcome in harassment cases. Topics include the potential need to educate your mediator about harassment, anticipating who should be present at the mediation (or not), supporting an emotionally vulnerable client through the mediation process, deciding what information to share and what information to keep confidential, valuing your client’s emotional distress damages, and helping your client meaningfully decide when to settle.

  6. Effectively Challenging Discrimination & Harassment In A Post-Epic Systems World, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    Workers’ rights advocates nationwide have condemned the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent Epic Systems decision as an “epic fail”—a ruling that will prevent the full and effective enforcement of state and federal employment laws for years to come, especially when systemic violations are at issue. But all is not lost. This is a pragmatic discussion about ways to defeat forced arbitration clauses and offer strategies for success in arbitration, focusing in particular on the unique considerations present in harassment and discrimination cases.

    • Effectively Challenging Discrimination & Harassment In A Post-Epic Systems World - Audio

  7. Non-Litigation Tools To Address Toxic Workplaces & Industries, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    In the #MeToo era, victims have increasingly turned to the media and the Internet to organize and share their stories of workplace sexual assault and harassment. Given the difficulties of litigating sexual harassment cases, these tools can often prove more effective in defeating sexual harassment than traditional legal channels. We discuss the role that non-litigation tools such as the press and social media can play in addressing toxic workplaces, and in assisting attorneys and clients to achieve success in both litigation and non-litigation contexts. This panel also discusses the role of attorneys in educating the public about legal and non-legal remedies for victims of sexual harassment and assault.

    • Non-Litigation Tools To Address Toxic Workplaces & Industries - Audio
    • Non-Litigation Tools To Address Toxic Workplaces & Industries - Paper

  8. Exploring Issues Of Women In Non-Traditional Professions & Low-Wage Workers, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    This panel explores how harassment can be more prevalent and systemic in workplaces or industries that are traditionally dominated by men, and how certain groups of workers may be more vulnerable to unlawful treatment. Issues relating to low-wage workers and intersecting identities, including immigration status, national origin, and race will be examined. We’ll also cover the kind of employment structures that can contribute to these vulnerabilities, and call for potentially different approaches to litigation.

    • Exploring Issues Of Women In Non-Traditional Professions & Low-Wage Workers - Audio

  9. Representing Clients Who Have Multiple, Intersecting Claims, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    Harassment is in many cases the product of broader workplace cultures that permit a variety of forms of unlawful behavior to persist. As such, workers facing harassment often have potentially actionable claims involving other forms of discrimination, e.g., gender, national origin, pay, etc., as well as a higher risk of experiencing retaliation. Our panelists review the considerations that come into play when deciding whether and how to bring a case with multiple, intersecting causes of action. These include understanding the different substantive liability standards that may apply, acquiring and deploying evidence that may bear on multiple claims, and knowing when it might be in the client’s best interest to either not pursue or jettison certain claims.

    This seminar includes the following components:
    • Representing Clients Who Have Multiple, Intersecting Claims - Audio
    • Representing Clients Who Have Multiple, Intersecting Claims - Paper

  10. How Legislation & Public Policy Can Be Used To Address Workplace Harassment, from NELA's 2018 Fall Seminar
    An essential component to ridding our workplaces of harassment will involve updating—and in some cases creating—the applicable legislative and regulatory provisions, but the appropriate policy solutions may vary among different states or between the state and federal level. Our panelists review the challenges and opportunities involved in crafting and enacting policy responses to the harassment epidemic, and present examples of how different jurisdictions have sought to address the problem.

    • How Legislation & Public Policy Can Be Used To Address Workplace Harassment - Audio
