Sexual Harassment Investigations – Best Practice Meeting (or Webinar)

Please join us for the next event of the Working Group Investigations on Tuesday, 15 September 2020 at 06:00pm

The prevention of sexual harassment and the protection of employees’ privacy, integrity and health is a key obligation of all employers in Switzerland. Still, when asked what they specifically do to protect their employees preventively and investigate and sanction instances of sexual harassment, the employers’ policies and processes are often unclear and rarely applied.

Lic. Iur. Monika Hirzel-Karolak, manager and owner of BeTrieb – Konfliktberatung für Unternehmen und Institutionen – Mobbing und sexuelle Belästigung in Zurich is an expert on prevention and investigation of sexual harassment cases. She will present best prevention and investigation practices. The language of the presentation is German.

The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion in English with Monika Hirzel-Karolak, Florian Bigler (Employee Relations EMEA, Google) and Ursula Gut-Sulzer (Mediator and External person of trust, Gut-zusammenleben GmbH, Winterthur). The panel will be moderated by Sandra Middel, ECS Board Member and CCO of Clariant.

Date: Tuesday, 15 September 2020, 06:00pm – 07:30pm

Venue: LALIVE, Stampfenbachplatz 4, 8006 Zurich; depending on the number of registrations and the further development of the COVID situation, the event may take place as a webinar. You will be informed in advance of the event.
