In the Wake of #MeToo (Part 1)

The Legal & Cultural Contours of Workplace Sexual Harassment

By: AltaClaro

Highly publicized revelations of workplace sexual harassment have rocked the entertainment industry, sparked a social movement and raised ground-shifting questions about workplace practices and procedures across industries.

Nicole Page and Alice Jump (name partners at New York law firm Reavis Page Jump LLP) have not only found themselves at the center of the legal matters surrounding these events, but have represented both employees and employers (and both accusers and accused) in a wide variety of workplace harassment matters in financial services, entertainment and other areas.

In Part 1 of this AltaClaro Expert Clip, Nicole and Alice place the current state of the issue in both industries in a historical context and evaluate the factors that have accelerated or slowed progress in each, all with an eye toward where we go from here (a topic they begin to explore in Part 2 of this series).


We invite you to join us on Wednesday, April 25 (12 PM, EDT) for a complimentary, live, interactive webcast (#MeToo, Now What? The Sexual Harassment Debate from the Legal Trenches), at which you will have the opportunity to ask Nicole and Alice your most pressing questions about these topical, highly charged issues.
