Sexual Harassment Litigation
The #metoo movement ignited awareness of the pervasive nature of sexual harassment across generations and industries. Sexual harassment and misconduct have long-permeated business cultures and institutions from higher education to entertainment to politics. But times are changing, and what was once tolerated or ignored is now cause for litigation. To meet the current challenges, WIT has assembled a world-class expert team to effectively address a broad range of issues faced in sexual harassment litigation.
Our sexual 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 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 organizational psychologists, human resource experts, investigators, damages experts, and public relations/reputational harm consultants.
Among our experts are:
- Organizational Psychologists on workplace discrimination and sexual harassment
- Human Resources Executives on the adequacy of internal or external investigations and company policies and procedures
- Emotional Damages Experts on the impact of sexual harassment on individuals
- Public Relations & Reputational Harm Experts on crisis management and defamation claims
Individual experts include an internationally renowned HR management professor, a former Director of Investigations for the NFL, a past President of the American Psychiatric Association, and a nationally recognized damage control expert – all highly qualified professors and industry leaders who have years of experience studying the behavior and effects of sexual harassment.
