Recent highly-publicized revelations of workplace harassment have served to educate employees of their legal rights.
The receipt by any supervisor of a complaint of harassment, no matter how seemingly unlikely, requires employers to conduct prompt, thorough and objective investigations.
Conducting a legally-compliant investigation is complex, and any mistakes or omissions can wind employers up in court.
Employers – do yourselves a favor. The moment you receive any complaint of workplace harassment, hire a labor law expert specializing in the conduct of harassment investigations. You only get one chance to do it right. It’s the law!
This ongoing seminar series is being conducted by veteran Petaluma labor & employment attorney, Jay Putnam. Putnam, has advised employers exclusively, in labor matters for over 36 years. He hopes to provide local business owners and managers with a solid, working understanding of California labor law, as a means of helping them avoid the often crippling cost and disruption caused by lawsuits resulting from a misunderstanding of applicable legal requirements.
Members are encouraged to bring their questions. Putnam says he intends to conduct the seminars as "informal, working sessions, where people can bring their lunch and their questions and leave each month with important information that will immediately improve their business operations.
