March Meeting - Defending Sexual Harassment Claims in the #TimesUp / #MeToo Era

PRESENTER: Marcus Lee

Tuesday, March 12, 2019
11:30a - 1:00p

HR is often the neutral party responsible for addressing workplace complaints and conducting investigations.  HR needs to project a strong stance against behaviors such as sexual assault and harassment, particularly given the prominence of today’s social movements. 

This seminar topic explores ways in which HR leaders can proactively promote an inclusive and safe workplace culture for employees, manage inappropriate patterns of behavior, and strategies for handling these claims.

Marcus Lee is an attorney in the San Francisco office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the Labor & Employment Group. He represents and counsels employers in all employment-related matters – litigation, risk management, and policy preparation.

Mr. Lee has tried cases in both state and federal court. He handles a wide variety of matters ranging from sexual harassment, gender/age/race discrimination, wage and hour disputes, and background checks.

Mr. Lee also advises companies on corporate law, financings, and mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Lee represents companies throughout California in a wide variety of industries including agriculture, hospitality, technology, entertainment.

Prior to joining Lewis Brisbois, Mr. Lee represented and advised entertainment clients on employment and corporate related matters for several years from a boutique practice in Beverly Hills, California.
