It seems every week brings word of a new public figure facing charges of sexual harassment.

Please join our panel of experts to discuss the following hot topics:
- Principles of sexual harassment identified by the courts
- Applying those principles in real life
- Best practices for avoiding and addressing sexual harassment risks
- Criminal Conviction Discrimination: Understanding Your Risks and Complying with NY Law

Brenda Steers, Loveman Kornreich & Steers
Brenda is president of Loveman, Kornreich & Steers, Inc. which was founded in 1977 by the merger of two firms. Both these firms enjoyed an excellent reputation as professionals with knowledge and integrity. LKS continues to maintain this reputation among our clients and insurance carriers.
She started at the firm in 1984 and worked as Senior Vice President in charge of operations. She became President and owner of the firm in 2007 where she continues to develop insurance programs that help businesses and individuals protect their assets and earnings against a variety of physical and financial hazards.
The operations of staffing firms are generally not fully understood by brokers, agents and insurance companies who do not specialize in this industry. Their unfamiliarity with the unique business models leads to carriers declining or only approximating the exact coverages needed for optimum protection, ultimately increasing the cost of risk. Loveman, Kornreich & Steers, Inc. (LKS) has been a specialist in the Staffing Industry for over 20 years and was appointed the first “Industry Partner” of New York Staffing Association (NYSA) in 1992.
