The Bar Association of San Francisco Paralegal Section presents a Continuing Legal Education seminar titled “Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: Understanding Your Rights in the Age of Tech and Trump” on November 29, 2017 from 12:00pm-1:15pm. Lieff Cabraser paralegal manager Hazel Mottershead will moderate, while attorney Michelle Lamy will be speaking on the panel.
Topics of discussion include: “tech bro” and “rape culture” in the workplace; what is implicit vs. what is implied; types of sexual harassment, quid pro quo and hostile work environment; training requirements for supervisors in California; what to do if you experience harassment in the workplace; how pervasive sexual harassment in the workplace affects gender discrimination and pay inequality; and the recent #MeToo campaign.
Upholding Employee Rights
Lieff Cabraser has a strong tradition of fighting for employee rights across America. Our employment law class action cases challenge (a) discrimination based on employees’ race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability; (b) wage violations, including failure to pay overtime, break time, or vacation time; and (c) misuse of employees’ retirement benefits. We also represent employees who “blow the whistle” on wrongdoing by their employers as well as in other cases alleging violations of the law.
