Executives and Sexual Harassment Allegations

Rachel Arnow-Richman (Denver Law) has an op-ed today in the San Francisco Chronicle about CBS’s ouster of CEO Les Moonves and companies’ contractual obligations to their highest executives in the midst of severe sexual harassment allegations:

“If #MeToo is to have lasting impact, companies must consistently take a hard line against high-level harassment, not just when it aligns with their other interests. This means abandoning contracts that insulate executives from accountability in favor of those that preserve employers’ ability to respond swiftly and nimbly to alleged violations of law.”
