#MeToo and #TimesUp in the Workplace
The CMBA is partnering with the Better Business Bureau for a half-day CLE, focused on the nuts and bolts of handling claims from both the plaintiff and defense perspectives, as well as tips and best practices for addressing accusations.

We're excited to partner with the Better Business Bureau to help educate on our member firms and organizations.

Meet us at the Bar for #MeToo and #TimesUp in the Workplace:  Handling Claims of Sexual Harassment.  Learn the nuts and bolts on screening cases and handling claims from plaintiff's and defense counsel.  Our expert attorney and HR consultant will provide direction on handling accusations, investigations and education in the workplace.  We'll wrap up with a panel discussion on prevention and handling sticky situations.
