Recent headlines make clear that sexual harassment in the workplace continues to be a problem for employers, including nonprofit organizations. Not only do claims of sexual harassment impose significant potential legal liability; they also may tarnish the reputation of an organization. Thus it is important for nonprofit organizations not only to foster a workplace that is free of sexual harassment, but also to be vigilant for discrimination and harassment based on other legally protected categories. There are several affirmative actions nonprofit organizations may take toward these goals. In addition, they should be prepared to respond to complaints of sexual harassment in a manner that is compliant with applicable law and minimizes the risk to the organization.
This program will explain what constitutes unlawful sexual harassment, what a nonprofit organization’s obligations are under the law, and the steps a nonprofit organization can take to minimize potential liabilities stemming from claims of sexual harassment. Through an application of real-life examples, we will discuss best practices, explore common pitfalls, and highlight areas of particular risk to nonprofit organizations.
