Sexual misconduct and harassment have long-permeated business cultures and institutions from higher education to entertainment to politics. But what was once tolerated or ignored is now cause for investigation and potential litigation. To meet the current challenges, WIT has assembled a world-class expert team who can effectively address issues faced in sexual misconduct and harassment allegations.
Our sexual misconduct and harassment experts are top academics and industry executives. They have decades of experience on matters relating to sexual harassment, sex discrimination, internal and external investigations into sexual misconduct, and the emotional and reputational harm caused to both the accused and accuser. Some of our affiliate experts have dedicated their careers to research focused on organizational tolerance for sexual harassment, particularly in the workplace, and the psychological effects on individuals after experiencing traumatic events. Others on the team can opine on topics relating to employability and public image following an alleged accusation.
Our sexual misconduct and harassment experts have been involved in some of the most high-profile cases in recent history on behalf of both plaintiffs/prosecutors and defendants. WIT’s team is comprised of licensed investigators, organizational psychologists, human resource experts, damages experts, and public relations/reputational harm consultants.
