#MeToo Take Two: Liability Beyond Title VII

Overview


A complaint is lodged. The employer completes its investigation, takes remedial action and implements additional training. The complainant is satisfied with the response. The employer is done, right? Crisis averted? Not quite.

Beyond Title VII and other state discrimination law issues, the #MeToo movement has ushered in a host of additional issues that can arise, such as:

  • Shareholder litigation—including Sarbanes-Oxley liability
  • Defamation and breach of privacy claims from the accused
  • Pay equity and discrimination allegations
  • Non-disclosure agreement viability

Please join us for a discussion on practical and proactive steps that in-house counsel, boards of directors and HR executives can take to protect their companies while creating a supportive and inclusive environment for employees.
