Internal Investigations in the Weinstein and #MeToo Era
(April 10; David Jimenez and Justin Theriault)

The U.S. Supreme Court first recognized workplace sexual harassment as a form of unlawful sex discrimination in Meritor Savings Bank v. Vinson in 1986. Since that landmark decision, the law prohibiting workplace sexual harassment has changed in several ways, including the Ellerth/Faragher defense and the prohibition of same sex sexual harassment in Oncale v. Sundowner Offshore Services, Inc. Recent events have demonstrated that serious reputational harm can result from a high-profile sexual harassment case. The plethora of significant and potentially long-lasting business implications has elevated sexual harassment compliance and prevention to a C-suite issue.

Employers must evaluate their policies and practices to ensure they are consistently maintaining and implementing preventive and remedial measures. It is essential that employers are ready to investigate workplace complaints in an efficient but comprehensive manner that enables fact-based decision making.
