Inside Counsel Interviews Gardere Co-Chair Carrie Hoffman on Workplace Harassment Claims

20 December 2017 News

Gardere partner Carrie Hoffman, co-chair of the firm’s labor and employment practice group, spoke with Inside Counsel on workplace sexual harassment training, prevention and reporting.   

“The purpose behind anti-harassment policies is to make employees aware that such behavior is not condoned and the consequences for violating the policy,” Hoffman said. “Despite the very clear edict in anti-harassment policies, unfortunately no policy can prohibit all types of behavior, just like no law can do so. Employers can refocus training on reminding employees about the consequences of violating such policies.”

Hoffman has defended clients throughout the U.S. in major employment litigation at both the federal and state court level, including class and collective actions. She also represents employers in investigations and audits by agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Texas Workforce Commission, the National Labor Relations Board and the Department of Labor.
