#MeToo & Effective Strategies in Investigating Sexual Harassment Claims

The advent of the #MeToo movement has pulled back the curtain on the long-buried and widespread issue of sexual harassment of women in the workplace. Thanks to a number of high-profile disclosures, many companies and organizations have renewed or revamped policies, procedures and codes of conduct aimed at preventing and responding to claims of sexual harassment. Investigating such claims, however, can be challenging; particularly without concrete evidence.
