Summary: Employers generally are facing an increasing number of complaints of harassment and gender-based wage discrimination as a result of recent increased exposure in the media of these types of claims. Law firms are not exempt from this scrutiny. Employers must be prepared to address such claims at the earliest stages in an honest and forthright manner to reduce legal exposure and, to put it simply, to do the right thing. This presentation will discuss proactive and defensive techniques that law firms can utilize to address this growing concern.
