The world has been rocked by the Harvey Weinstein scandal for the past few weeks, in which dozens of actresses have come out in condemnation of Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein, accursing him of sexual harassment, assault, and rape. In fact, following the breaking of this news, millions of women across the world have opened up online about their sexual harassment experiences, using the hashtag #metoo. As a result, numerous repercussions have already taken place, such as Amazon studio head Roy Price resigning after being accused of sexual harassment.
Our very own Attorney David Diamond commented on the matter to People.com, stating: "Corporate entities need to have clauses in all employment contracts that if you are found to have committed sexual harassment, you are terminated. It has to be black and white, there can be no more grey areas. It needs to be clear that if you commit sexual harassment that you will be terminated without a golden parachute; you leave with nothing. Taking a hardline approach like that is the only way to stop it." You may read this article by clicking here.
While our legal team feels those who have committed acts of sexual harassment and assault deserve to be punished, we also feel the current climate should not encourage false accusations against those who are innocent. With so much discussion surrounding sexual harassment, this may result in blameless parties being incorrectly convicted of a crime they did not commit.
