MFM Distance Learning Webinar To Discuss Creating A Respectful Workplace

     Northfield, IL, February 7, 2018 – MFM, the Media Financial Management Association, is offering a Distance Learning webinar addressing ways organizations can create a respectful workplace, the best means for avoiding the damaging effects of sexual harassment and discrimination.

     Scheduled for Tuesday, February 13, from 1-2:00 p.m. (ET), the online session entitled “Creating a Respectful Workplace – it Pays” will be presented by Sharon P. Stiller, Partner and Director of the Employment Law Practice at Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara, Wolf & Carone, LLP.

      “While the greatest suffering is experienced by the victims of harassment, the damage it causes to organizations extends well beyond the penalties paid to the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) and can imperil their future financial performance in numerous ways,” said Mary M. Collins, president and CEO of MFM and BCCA. “With the help of widely recognized employment practices expert Sharon Stiller, webinar participants will learn how their efforts to create a more respectful workplace will not only minimize the risk of legal exposure but also help to bolster their reputation among current and prospective employees, customers and business partners.”   

Sharon P. Stiller, a Partner and Director of the Employment Law Practice at Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara, Wolf & Carone, LLP, advises businesses and executives about employment law, represents businesses in federal and state labor department audits, and litigates employment matters, including state and federal wage and hour, discrimination, contract, confidentiality, non-compete, and similar claims. She also helps businesses audit their employment practices, and drafts employment contracts, manuals, policies, and separation and release agreements. She is a frequent trainer for businesses in sexual harassment, employment, law, social media issues, disability discrimination, and affordable health care compliance.

    Ms. Stiller is a fellow of the prestigious College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, and is the author of two treatises on employment law, Employment Law in New York (2nd Series) (West Group 2012) (Volume 13A of the New York State Practice Series) and the national treatise, Expert Witnesses: Employment Cases (Thomson West 2008-2009).
