Avoiding Defamation Claims Arising Out of Harassment Investigations

Perspectives - United Educators
September 24, 2012

Ellen Babbitt authored the article, "Avoiding Defamation Claims Arising Out of Harassment Investigations," published by United Educators Insurance in its Perspectives newsletter. The article discusses the serious risk of related defamation claims when a harassment allegation is brought against an institution of higher learning or any employer.  If an employer fails to properly handle a harassment investigation there is increased risk that the employer may have to deal with a defamation claim as well. Since 1997, Ellen has also served as Illinois Select Counsel for United Educators.
