Ballard Spahr is pleased to announce our webinar series, The Evolving Manufacturing Industry: Legal Developments, Challenges, and Opportunities. Each program in the series will discuss the ever-changing issues faced by companies in the manufacturing industry.

The #MeToo movement has elevated our awareness of harassment, discrimination, and pay equity issues across a range of industries—and manufacturing has been no exception. At the movement’s first year anniversary, the number of sexual harassment charges have risen dramatically across the nation, and employers in all industries must be prepared to respond effectively to complaints, act proactively, and implement permanent change. This webinar will focus on new developments, best practices, and what employers can expect to come next.

Topics will include:

  • #MeToo and Pay Equity in the News

  • The Reaction: Legislation and Litigation

  • Best Practices for a Professional Behavior Policy (Including No Harassment/Discrimination/Retaliation)

  • Pay Equity: Considerations, Concerns, and Practical Advice
