Sexual harassment has become a major topic of conversation in many workplaces today with more and more employees alleging that they have been harassed. But what you might not realize about these sexual harassment complaints is that many times the harassment has happened virtually, via text message, sexting, posted on Facebook or other social media or sent via email.

Please join Melissa Fleischer for must-have guidance on virtual harassment. HR needs to better understand what virtual harassment is, how to ensure that your Sexual Harassment Policy prohibits virtual harassment, as well as how to best protect your organization against complaints of violation of your anti-harassment policy when employees harass others virtually.
