In the wake of the #MeToo movement, companies large and small are hastily trying to get every employee and manager trained on sexual harassment as well as other employment law topics. But does haste make waste?

If you are rolling out the same training you have done every year thinking it will serve as a defense in the event your company is sued, think again. The EEOC has issued new guidance on what constitutes adequate and effective training sufficient to be a defense in litigation. Join us for a robust discussion of the use of employment training in establishing an affirmative defense to harassment claims including a review of court cases in which training played a key role in the establishment of the company's litigation defense strategy.
