High-profile sexual harassment scandals, such as allegations against Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein of the Weinstein Company, and Bill O’Reilly and Roger Aisles of Fox News, are changing the landscape of workplace sexual harassment claims and litigation.

Does your answer change if the allegation is a widely known scandal-making front page news?
  • Compare the sexual harassment liability of a business entity that is a sole proprietorship with an entity that is a corporation.
