Harassment and Hostile Work Environment — In the News

October 12, 2016

Recently, KVUE, Austin’s affiliate TV station, reached out to our firm inquiring how HR is handling harassment and hostile work environment situations for its clients.    Click here to see our own, David Hughen’s interview and comments on this topic.   Everyone seems to have a thought or an opinion on this controversial topic since it’s relevant in the news right now.  At Austin HR, we have received calls and questions inquiring what to do about situations that may or may not have been brought to light because of the recent focus on this topic.

Our HR Hotline team fields these questions, providing guidance on how best to address inappropriate behaviors in the workplace, noting relevant laws and protections around this subject.

 

We also recommend a relevant article written by Daniel Swartz with  Shipman & Goodwin LLP as another great read on this topic.
