In an article published on Dec. 19, 2017 in The National Law Journal, Greenville partner Bill Foster discusses how businesses should respond to a workplace sexual harassment crisis in the wake of the #MeToo movement. “Companies should be careful of avoiding knee-jerk responses to workplace developments. Arbitration and settlement agreements can protect accusers as well as the company,” Foster told the publication in an interview. “Employees want to see from the top down, the company is taking a cultural groundswell to do the right thing.” The story outlined the practices that large companies – including Microsoft – are starting to take to demonstrate their commitment to positive work environments. “It’s really coming to light now that these policies and procedures need to be in place. Companies need to say, ‘We are not tolerating harassment in the workplace and are focusing on this top down.’ ”
