ON NOVEMBER 1, 2017

Bernabei & Kabat's, Lynne Bernabei and Michael Ellement, contributed to the November 1, 2017 edition of Law360 with their article "Weinstein Scandal Highlights Employment Contract Questions". The article discusses Harvey Weinstein's employment contract with The Weinstein Company and his recent termination. The article concludes by arguing that "states should bar corporate boards from offering contracts to top executives that tolerate or permit sexual harassment in the workplace, bar contracts that allow employees to escape discipline for unlawful conduct by paying their employer, bar workplace confidentiality rules that discourage employees from reporting sexual harassment or criminal actions, and establish liability for boards which turn a deaf ear to sexual harassment."
