Next week we will be officially announcing our third Hot Seat Webinar, to be conducted March 29, 2018 at 2:00 Eastern. It will discuss the very important topic of sexual harassment, with a look at its impact in workers’ comp; both as employers and service providers. We have assembled a terrific panel for this, and I believe that this episode will be our best one yet.
The title and description of this webinar will be:
Sexual Harassment in Workers’ Comp: Ignorance, Stupidity or Evil?
What are the liabilities and how should we respond?
The workers’ compensation industry is not immune to issues and challenges of sexual harassment. What constitutes harassment? Are all incidences the same? How should employers and employees in our sector deal with perpetrators, and how do we help the victims? Does this growing national issue present challenges for mental-mental states? How do we protect due process with this issue? Our panel of experts will have a frank and open discussion on these and other questions surrounding the challenges of sexual harassment in the workplace.
The Hot Seat was created and hosted by Judge David Langham and me. We wanted a format where we could address the tough issues in workers’ comp and do so in a candid and spirited manner. We have been very pleased with the results thus far, and the feedback we are getting is very, very good. Our first episode, Opioids and Formularies, Going to Pot?, aired on September 29, 2017, and our second, Violating Trust: Ethical Conundrums in Workers’ Compensation was held January 5, 2018 (both are available for viewing by clicking on the respective title).
We are excited about addressing this very important subject, and will release more information next week. In the meantime, mark your calendar. Save that date. That was March 29, 2018 at 2:00 eastern.
We look forward to seeing you there.
