    The key steps that employers take once they receive an employee complaint can be critical to evaluating and avoiding liability.  In this interactive briefing, we will discuss best practices for responding to complaints to assess and help avoid the risk of substantial exposure.  In particular, we will focus on complaints of sexual harassment and how to handle complicated “he said-she said” scenarios.
