Sabrina A. Beldner Discusses Sexual Harassment in Workplace

April 4, 2018

McGuireWoods labor and employment partner Sabrina A. Beldner wrote an article on workplace sexual harassment which has been published in the spring 2018 issue of Today’s General Counsel.

In the article, Beldner noted that employers across industries should expect to see an increase in harassment claims inspired by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements and discussed the steps employers can take to prevent, investigate and remedy sexual harassment claims in the workplace. Underscoring the importance of investigating each claim, Beldner explained that the era of “pay off and press on” is over, and “[t]o ignore claims or to dismiss them as too dated or insignificant, or to serially pay off employees victimized by a highly valued predator puts the employer’s brand and business at risk and endangers employees.”
