Former Vice President Joe Biden has been accused of inappropriate touching, occurring over a number of years. What if the former Vice President was an employee?

• How would you handle allegations that may have arisen outside of the context of work?

• How would you handle allegations that were years (sometimes decades) old?

• How would you handle allegations that don’t quite rise to the level of harassment?

• And how would all this be impacted by Vice President Biden’s “celebrity” status?

These are the questions that will be answered in this one hour webinar. Those attending will gain insight into handling high-profile investigations, as well as into allegations that don’t quite rise to the level of harassment and allegations that are well beyond the statute of limitations (and perhaps outside of the strict employment context).
