The current landscape in the #MeToo Era has heightened the need for leaders at every business organization to ensure that sound and strategically aligned practices for preventing, receiving, and responding to harassment, discrimination and other workplace related claims are in place.

Proskauer has just released its findings from a broad-based survey of employers around the country who are responding to these pressing issues in real time. The initial web-based survey included more than 50 high-level legal decision makers responsible for employment issues within their organizations. Proskauer supplemented its survey results with information learned at several Proskauer Peer Perspectives events around the country, where we then presented our findings to a select group of in-house counsel and solicited additional feedback. We also conducted in-depth follow-up interviews with these decision makers before putting the finishing touches on the Survey.
