Sex and The Start-Up
If you had any doubt that startups are incubators of sexual harassment which leads inexorably to sexual harassment charges and lawsuits which can cripple, if not destroy your company, as I wrote about this week in Above The Law, I recommend reading Lara Vapnyar’s book review in this weekend’s New York Times of a novel by Doree Shafrir entitled (aptly) “Startup.”
Here’s a snippet from the review:
“I used to work at a place where we had to take annual sexual harassment quizzes. The quizzes were online, the questions were multiple choice. For some reason, I would always fail them. … Reading “Startup,” a biting and astute debut novel by Doree Shafrir, made me feel stuck inside one of those quizzes again.”
Takeaway: Read this review (and, oh yeah, the book too!) and call your employment lawyer today!
