Join us to learn more about sexual harassment during our September meeting when our speaker will be Amy Jordan Wilkes, partner at the law firm of Burr Forman. During this time of “#metoo,” it’s more important than ever to know what sexual harassment looks like and how it should best be handled in the workplace. Amy regularly counsels employees with respect to all types of human resource issues, including sexual harassment, employee hiring, discipline and termination, wage and hour issues and the development of personnel policies and procedures, to name a few. A graduate of Auburn University and Vanderbilt University Law School, Amy is active in many community and professional organizations.
