    Presenter - Sarah Collier, KBL Solicitors

    Topic - What is (Workplace) Sexual Harassment? #WorkToo


    What is (Workplace) Sexual Harassment? #WorkToo

    Following the allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein and the uprising of the #MeToo movement, the focus on sexual harassment has spread not only to encompass individuals but also companies to which these individuals are employed. Sexual Harassment is a serious workplace issue but often staff and employees do not know what is or is not sexual harassment. Our session will examine the issues surrounding sexual harassment in the workplace including answering the question ?what constitutes sexual harassment in the workplace??   

    We will include group work / anecdotal examples to explore the issues of sexual harassment in the workplace and ask what constitutes sexual harassment? We will then look at the legal definition of sexual harassment and revisit the feedback from the earlier group work to establish whether they were right!

    We will also look at dealing with allegations raised by employees in the workplace and how businesses can protect against this and deal with it in a manner that will minimise the risk of Employment Tribunal claims.

    Sarah Collier ? Sarah has practised exclusively in employment law since qualifying as a solicitor in 2009. Sarah advises businesses on a multitude of HR/employment law issues and has particular expertise advising on discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Sarah also delivers training to clients at external events and also in-house training to the wider workforce on a range of employment topics including sexual harassment.

What members and guests say

"I can?t praise Business Network (Central & East Lancs) highly enough. It offers just the right blend of formal and informal networking and, crucially, a good mix of organisations to build relationships with. We?ve made some excellent contacts and some really good friends."

Chris Macpherson

"Having been involved in many business networking over the years, I have found Preston Business Network to be one of the best organised and most enjoyable meetings I have attended. Every meeting is very well planned / hosted, the agenda is relaxed, always kept to time and held the best venues available in the area. Business Network provides a valuable opportunity for our business to network locally and will remain a vital component of our face to face marketing for many years to come. "
