Sexual harassment can kill you if you are a start-up company
In my weekly Above The Law article, entitled Sex Can Kill A Start-Up — Sexual Harassment, That Is, I comment that:
“Running a business, or a law firm, is hard work, and starting one is even harder. You enter a vast unknown of market forces, customers and clients, vendors… and not insignificantly, personnel.
The unglamorous task of HR is usually left to an overworked manager or assistant who has tons of other things to do, and would rather be doing them, and little or no experience in HR.
And the typically very young workforce is left to behave.
Or sometimes not.”
