#MeToo: Hot Topics & Emerging Trends In Harassment Litigation, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

Tarana Burke, a social justice activist and the Senior Director of Programs at Girls for Gender Equity, created the “Me too” slogan in 2006 to raise awareness regarding various forms of abuse in our society. In the wake of numerous recent revelations of sexual harassment and assault perpetrated by high-profile media, entertainment, and political figures, a renewed #MeToo movement has sparked a long-overdue public conversation regarding the treatment of women in the workplace. While the pervasiveness of unaddressed sexual harassment is well known to employee rights advocates, it is important to think carefully about how increased awareness may impact our current and future cases. Our highly-experienced panelists will discuss hot topics and emerging trends in harassment litigation and explore what the broader discussion surrounding these issues teaches us about how these cases are perceived by the public—and how we can use that to better serve our clients.

This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission.
