Building a Respectful and Inclusive Workplace

October 30, 2019
Verrill

One Federal Street, 20th Floor

Boston, MA

Businesses are continuing to focus on diversity and inclusivity; however, discrimination and harassment claims are still all too prevalent. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, between 2009 and 2018, the number of sex discrimination complaints in Massachusetts increased by nearly 109%. During the same timeframe, the number of age discrimination complaints in the state increased by nearly 40%.

Join Verrill and MassPay for an in-person program on October 30 on how to build a respectful and inclusive workplace. Presenters Sheri Heller, of MassPay, and Tawny Alvarez, of Verrill, will help attendees navigate best practices and policies, as well as what to do when a claim is made.

Program will be from 3:30 to 4:30PM with the happy hour to follow.
