Nov 17, 2016

CHICAGO, IL - Clark Hill Attorney Richard H. Chapman authored an article featured in the September-October edition of “Illinois Banker” magazine entitled, “Effective Harassment, Discrimination, and Retaliation Policies and Interactive Leader-Led Training Are Just Plain Good Investments for Banks.” The article highlights the essential best compliance practice of banks’ and other businesses’ adoption, distribution, and enforcement of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation prevention policies as an essential element of their human resources function—the importance of which was illustrated in a recent federal appeals court decision.  The article also details key elements of the recent Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s “Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace,” including its focus on benefits of leader-led interactive workplace compliance training for managers and employees.

“Illinois Banker” is the bi-monthly magazine of The Illinois Bankers Association (IBA).  The magazine annually includes Chapman’s articles focusing on human resource compliance best practices based on current developments in employment law.  Founded in 1891, the IBA brings together state and national banks, savings banks, and savings and loan associations of all sizes in Illinois. Collectively, the IBA represents nearly 90 percent of the assets of the Illinois banking industry, which employs more than 100,000 men and women in over 5,000 offices across the state.
