"Wisconsin Practice Trends 2018: Labor and Employment Law" (Wisconsin Lawyer)

Wisconsin Lawyer
February 2018

Denney’s report predicts activity in this area will be “cool” in 2018, except for immigration issues. But recent events will change that, says Christine Liu McLaughlin of Godfrey & Kahn S.C. in Milwaukee.

“I think the runaway train of the #MeToo movement will soon be moving into workplaces,” she says. “We are going to see and already have seen an uptick in not only sexual harassment complaints coming in, but also employers wanting guidance on how to address those complaints, some of which are years old.”

Employers will need to be reminded to scrutinize their policies and make sure “their open-door policy is really open,” she adds. Lawyers will need to help employers to navigate this sensitive terrain in a thoughtful and intentional manner.

“There are legalities that need to be considered before a rush to judgment,” Liu McLaughlin says. “It can be a very slippery slope for employers in Wisconsin.”
