30 Years After Meritor Savings Bank v. Vinson: The State Of Sexual Harassment In The Workplace

It’s been 30 years since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a claim of “hostile environment” sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that is actionable under Title VII. Gretchen Carlson’s sexual harassment suit against Roger Ailes, founder and former Chairman and CEO of Fox News and the Fox Television Stations Group, has brought the topic back into the national spotlight. Our experts will provide an overview of the state of the law, practical litigation strategies, how to overcome the employer’s scorched earth tactics, and findings of the EEOC’s Select Taskforce On Harassment In The Workplace.

Moderator: Scott M. Pollins
Speakers: The Honorable Chai Feldblum & Joseph M. Sellers
