Preventing sexual harassment in the workplace will become a priority in 2018. With all of the news surrounding sexual harassment in Hollywood with Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Bill Cosby, etc., how do HR professionals ensure that we can prevent it from happening in the workplace? How do we start a confidential dialogue about harassment incidents? How do we create a culture of safety and security to encourage those conversations? What is our responsibility as an HR leader?


In this session you will learn:
1) What is and what is not illegal harassment
2) The elements of a harassment claim and an employer’s defenses
3) The five core principles for preventing and addressing workplace harassment:

  • Commitment by senior leadership
  • Accountability by senior leadership
  • An effective harassment policy
  • An effective complaint procedure
  • Regular, targeted training

 This event has been approved for one hour of general SHRM credit. 


T. Cullen Stafford: Cullen focuses his practice on representing management in litigation involving wage and hour disputes, breach of contract, unfair competition, race and national origin discrimination, harassment, and disability discrimination. He also represents and counsels employers in labor matters related to arbitrations
and unfair labor practice cases, as well as general commercial litigation. Cullen has represented companies in a variety of industries, including healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, retail, education, and finance. In addition, Cullen counsels employers on a variety of issues, including reductions in force, terminations, regulatory compliance, and drafting effective handbooks, policies, and employment agreements. 


Prior to joining the firm, Cullen worked at Ford Harrison LLP, a boutique labor and employment firm in Atlanta, Georgia. Cullen graduated cum laude from Emory University School of Law, where he received awards for outstanding achievement in Negotiations and Disability Discrimination. During law school, Cullen clerked for the Georgia Supreme Court, as well as the Major Case Division of the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.

She provides clients with representation, counseling and training on all state and federal employment laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and state wage and hour laws, as well as covenants not to
compete, trade secrets, wage payment and collection, employment terminations and severance, policies and handbooks and other issues related to employment. Diane is admitted to practice before all federal and state courts in North Carolina, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court, and regularly defends management clients in proceedings before the state and federal Departments of Labor and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
