    Speaker: Curnis Upkins, Jr. VP Human Resources & Workforce Services Mississippi Hospital Association

    Topic: Sexual Harassment - How Much Would You Pay for Sex?

    Sexual harassing behavior has a significant impact on an employer's workforce and can lead to significant finanical liability. Inappropriate workplace behavior can contribute to low morale, employee turnover, negative public opninion and legal litigation. Maintaining a harassment free workplace has always been important; however, in the current "#MeToo" and "time's Up" movements, it is vital that all employers train supervisors and staff on maintaining a harassment free work environment. Curnis's presentation will define what is sexual harassment, identify the types of sexual harassment, inform that group on who are the harassers, and provide strategies to investigate, prevent and stop harassing behavior in the workplace.
