We are delighted to share Episode 16 of The Lawdown, our regular podcast discussing the latest key employment, discrimination and partnership law-related news stories, and the interesting legal issues behind them!
In our latest episode of The Lawdown, Partner Beth Hale, Senior Associate Wonu Sanda and Associate Pooja Dasgupta discuss:
- the government’s response to the consultation on sexual harassment in the workplace, published at the end of July 2021, including an overview of the government’s key commitments and their potential implications; and
- harassment during lockdown and upon returning to the office, including the increase in online harassment whilst working remotely; the challenges faced by employers when addressing and preventing harassment in a blended/hybrid working model; and the importance of updating policies and delivering refresher training on harassment, particularly in the current climate.
We hope you enjoy it! For more information on any of the topics discussed, or to suggest a story for us to cover, please email us at email@example.com.
