Labor & Employment chair Laurent Drogin was recently quoted in an Associated Press article, which was featured in the Washington Post, "Credibility at Risk, Media Cuts Stars Loose Over Sex Claims." In the article, Laurent addressed why companies are taking fast, decisive action against employees, no matter how "high profile" or important to an organization they may be, when accusations related to sexual misconduct are made, noting, "Employers would rather take the risk from the accused turning around and coming after them for something than to possibly be faulted for not remedying a work situation." He went on to say that, "There’s a below-zero-tolerance policy now."
In addition to the Washington Post, the AP article ran in ABC News, U.S. News World Report and the Sacramento Bee among many other news outlets.
