#MeToo Webcast – Moving the Conversation Beyond Employee Practices Liability
As the #MeToo movement remains front of mind for employers, our experts discussed a broader range of topics to consider in protecting your organization from potential claims and how to handle this evolving risk.
During the webcast, our panel discussed:
- The scope of the #MeToo movement and its impact on sexual harassment claims under EPL policies, as well as how companies can position themselves for EPL underwriting success in this evolving claims environment.
- The importance of a sound D&O program in the wake of the #MeToo movement. With the heightened media focus on the #MeToo movement, we are now witnessing the beginning of a trend in stock-drop claims and other securities litigation targeting companies and their directors and officers arising out of the #MeToo movement.
- The ways in which media organizations can utilize insurance to transfer some of the risk associated with claims of defamation and certain related torts, such as intrusion upon seclusion, publication of private facts, or portrayal in a false light.
- The questions companies should be asking as they look to pro-actively manage and respond to the many facets of exposure which the #MeToo movement is creating.
