Martha Doty was part of a panel presenting, "Sexual Harassment Claims: Minimizing Conduct or Showing That It Had No Effect on the Discriminatee," July 27, 12:40pm-1:30pm, during this conference sponsored by the American Conference Institute (ACI). The panel covered the following topics.
- What conduct is now “severe or pervasive”?

Sexual harassment claims where the relationship was apparently consensual at the beginning but then changed
How to not let the secondary fallout from the claims impact the cases
Defending against claims when a key executive is the alleged perpetrator or there are allegations of physical abuse
Tag-on state statutory claims involving violence against women
EPLI issues when physical assault or abuse is alleged
- Defending the accused harasser – considerations and theories
