HR Dive

David W. Garland, Member of the Firm and Chair of the firm’s National Employment, Labor & Workforce Management Steering Committee, was cited in HR Dive, in “Despite #MeToo, Workplace Sexual Harassment Persists,” by Valerie Bolden-Barrett.

Following is an excerpt:

The American Physiological Association’s 2018 Work and Well-being Survey, released in May, showed that organizations had done little to change their policies on or handling of sexual misconduct since the movements drew attention on the subject. State and municipalities, however, were quicker to change their sexual harassment policies and upgrade their training programs. In an article for HR Dive, Atty. David W. Garland, a member of the firm and chair of Epstein Becker Green’s National Employment, Labor & Workforce Management Steering Committee, cautioned employers that state and city changes could impact the way they handle sexual harassment and therefore they should move ahead with their own policy and training changes.
