Legal Hour Speaker



Rasha Zeyadeh, JD
Valentine’s Day at Work: Cupid or Stupid

Sexual harassment in the workplace can happen to anyone regardless of gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.  While sexual harassment has always been an issue, plaintiffs’ attorneys are experiencing an increase in calls and initial consultations from employees in the wake of the #Metoo movement.  In turn, defense attorneys are experiencing an increase in requests for sexual harassment training. Indeed, the #Metoo movement has increased activity for both employees and employers – victims of sexual harassment feel more empowered to come forward and employers are becoming increasingly diligent in responding to and attempting to prevent claims.  Still, in Rasha’s experience representing numerous victims of sexual harassment, many feel their complaints were not properly investigated or even taken seriously by Human Resources. In fact, many, if not all of Rasha’s clients feel retaliated against for lodging a complaint.  Rasha will share her first-hand experience representing employees asserting sexual harassment and retaliation claims and what Human Resources professionals can do in their workplaces to prevent such claims or to limit legal liability if and when a claim is made.
