You’ve probably noticed that the #MeToo movement is as strong as ever. There are all kinds of comments, from all kinds of people, about the need for training on this important topic, but there hasn’t been much action.
As we like to do at FELTG, we’re doing something about it by addressing the issue of sexual harassment in the federal government head-on. Join us in Washington, DC, March 26 for a half-day seminar Sexual Harassment as Misconduct: Defending Your Agency while Protecting Your Employees. In this program, we’ll discuss the foundational law and how sexual harassment cases come to be, but our emphasis will be on STOPPING it from happening by addressing the misconduct before it becomes a problem. Case examples will show you the best ways to handle inappropriate sexual conduct from employees and supervisors – and things to avoid. We hope you’ll be able to attend this important discussion.
The program runs from 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and is targeted to supervisors, managers, and advisers.
