What Do I Do Next? Addressing Claims of Sexual Harassment  

Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 11am Central

Synopsis: A common issue that I see in the industry concerns claims of sexual harassment and how to handle them, whether it be by drivers operating as a team or drivers and their trainers. Companies should be counseled to ensure the proper steps are taken in response to a claim. For example, consider the following:
 

  • What if the claim arises and the trainer and driver are out on the road?
  • What if the company does not have a human resources department, who should handle the investigation?
  • What if the allegations rise to the level of criminal conduct?
  • What if the claim involves an officer of the company?
  • Who should be interviewed first, the claimant or the alleged aggressor?
  • Does the company have a policy against sexual harassment and what progressive disciplinary policy should be followed depending upon the findings of the investigation?
  • Is there insurance available to that can help the company investigate claims?

 This webinar is to provide guidance so members can engage qualified counsel. To verify the enforceability and applicable laws, we recommend that members seek legal counsel.
