Human Rights & Sexual Harassment – Prevent the Violations & Costs

We would like to alert you to a conference on a topic that is a growing practice area for employment lawyers.  The conference “Avoiding the High Cost of Human Rights and Sexual Harassment Violations” features experts in the area including mediator / arbitrator lawyers Barry Fisher and Peter Israel, legal author David Harris, investigations lawyer Gillian Shearer and Lisa Talbot, employment law partner with Torys.  We have arranged for those visiting our site to obtain a $200 discount on the delegate fee (use code “UMBRELLA” when registering).


Over the past 4 years, there has been a dramatic increase in damage awards with penalties as high as $800,000 and 12 years back pay. The panel participating in the conference, including Warren Shepell, are leaders in their fields, focusing on current trends and what organizations can do now to protect their bottom line and reputations.  Many organizations are not adequately training their employees, if at all, so that they are compliant with current legislation.
