This class, available in person and via webinar, will explore the current state of the law of sexual harassment claims, the legal requirements for meeting each of the essential elements of a hostile environment and a quid pro quo claim of sexual harassment. Ms. Bess and her Ms. Katz will also discuss the nuances of a same-sex sexual harassment claim, as well as the current status of the courts’ willingness to recognize claims for transgender harassment and sexual orientation harassment. Lastly, they will explore the most recent headline-grabbing sexual harassment scandals and discuss the important lessons learned.
