DFEH Guidelines: Latest Regulations & Guidance for Employers

The State of California is known for taking steps aimed at protecting employees from unlawful conduct in the workplace.  However, these steps often come with little to no guidance, leaving employers wondering what is expected of them.  For instance, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) recently amended regulations governing an employer’s affirmative duty to take reasonable steps to prevent and correct discriminatory and harassing conduct.

In the wake of these amendments, employers have been left with many unanswered questions, including:
 

  • What does the DFEH consider a “fair, timely, and thorough investigation”? 
  • How can an employer satisfy its “obligation to prevent and correct wrongful behavior”?
  • What does the DFEH mean when it stated that confidentiality should “be kept by the employer to the extent possible?”


In this 30 minute webinar Los Angeles-based attorneys Daphne Bishop and Carolina Schwalbach will review the DFEH’s latest regulations and offer guidance to employers on topics including:
 

  • What an effective anti-harassment program should include
  • What steps should be taken in conducting an investigation
  • How to address he said/she said situations
  • What kind of remedial measures should be taken as a result of investigations into alleged wrongdoing
