Is Time Really Up for Sexual Harassment in the Workplace? Companies and Law Firms Respond

American Bar Association

Workplace Fairness' Senior Advisor and former Executive Director, Paula Brantner, talks with the American Bar Association about how companies deal with sexual harassment and how things have changed.

"One difference Brantner sees is that liability no longer guides company policy. In the past, many organizations were content to “check off the boxes” in terms of training, sending the message that if it didn’t meet the standards of legal liability, the company had little interest in pursuing it." "You want to create a culture where certain things just aren’t done—not because it violates the law, but because it doesn’t reflect company values, Brantner points out."
