Bury & Bolton law firm Clough & Willis is staging a free event Thursday 15th February for employers and business owners that will discuss how companies should deal with allegations of sexual harassment made against their staff.
The event will cover various topics and will provide a guide on existing legislation and will give some practical tips on how to investigate and deal with sexual harassment complaints. Attendees will also learn the methods of limiting problems arising in the first place.
The seminar will be led by Chris Macwilliam who is Head of Employment & Dispute Resolution at Clough & Willis. Chris advises all types of companies on employment law issues, from SMEs with a small number of employees to PLCs. Chris also works with owner managed businesses and with established HR professionals – both in-house and consultants.
As well as conducting employment litigation, he has offered employment law advice for many firms on all aspects of employment law and human resource management from drafting policies and procedures to complex transfer of undertakings matters.
Chris said: “Sexual harassment has been in the headlines recently – and research shows that the problem is widespread in the workplace – so it’s vital that employers know what to do if the allegations arise in their business. Our aim is for this event to do just that so people know the facts and how to deal with such sensitive matters in a proper way.”
