What is sexual harassment in the workplace? What options do you have if you think you or a colleague are being sexually harassed? Do you need to go to court? How do you “prove” it? And what if you don’t have money to hire a lawyer? For answers to these questions and more like them, join us at our free webinar with lawyers Cayleigh Shiff of the Community Legal Assistance Society and Catalina Rodriguez of Forte Law as they explain what sexual harassment in the workplace is, what options you have, and where you might find support.
