Webinar: Combating Inappropriate Workplace Conduct at Nonprofits, a NonProfit Times Webinar
Several high-profile nonprofit executives have recently been accused of inappropriate workplace behavior and either fired or forced out of their jobs. Sexual harassment, bullying and other forms of inappropriate behavior by managers and staff have no place in a work environment. The NonProfit Times presents three experts in the field who will instruct on legal ramifications, process and internal management unique to the nonprofit sector.
Lisa Brauner focuses in the area of employment law, advising and representing employers in workplace law-related matters. She counsels and advises employers in many aspects of the employment relationship, including avoidance of litigation, wage/hour compliance, preventing unlawful discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, reductions-in-force, lawful hiring and terminations, disability, pregnancy and religious reasonable accommodation issues, as well as compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations. Lisa conducts trainings on preventing unlawful discrimination and harassment and independent investigations of internal complaints of unlawful discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation.
