Curt Surls is a Specialist in the areas of Employment Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Wrongful Termination with nearly 30 years of experience focusing almost exclusively on this area of law.
Mr. Surls stated “I am grateful for the opportunity to share my experience of almost 30 years and to join such distinguished panelists. Internal workplace investigations are an important risk management tool for employers when there are allegations such as harassment. I am truly looking forward to this workshop.” He then explains in more detail: “A few years ago in the case of Crawford v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, 555 U.S. 271 (2009), the Supreme Court reminded employers of their duty ‘to ferret out and put a stop to any discriminatory activities’ in the workplace. It instructs employers ‘to adopt and strengthen procedures for investigating, preventing, and correcting discriminatory conduct.’”
