Join us for a live encore of:
Today’s Cultural Influences and the Law of Harassment:
Managing Like J.P. Morgan in a Li’l Wayne World
Speaker: Jonathan Martin, Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP
As modern "entertainment" becomes more obscene, judges and legislators are becoming more restrictive. One employee may find "The Hangover" to be hilarious; another offensive. Rap music stars, celebrity "housewives", “bachelors”, and others make small fortunes engaging in distasteful behavior which is glorified on television, and the ratings go up. Yet business owners are expected to ensure no one is offended in the workplace.
Here's the workplace "reality" show: What employees listen to, watch, download, and use to entertain themselves is in your workplace whether you like to acknowledge it or not. The cost of making the wrong decision is a six figure lawsuit. And, the long term business cost of unmotivated and unproductive employees is even higher - potentially even bankruptcy.
Do you know what to do? Do you know how to address it? Do you know what questions are relevant, or even how to begin an investigation? Do you even know what laws can impose great penalties on your company for what your employees find entertaining? Do you know how to motivate and lead several generations of employees with different viewpoints, communication methods, and values?
Join Jonathan Martin, a partner with the national labor and employment law boutique, Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP, and he will provide the answers; and even entertain you while he's doing it.
