ABKLaw Employment Law Attorney Lawrence Spasojevich quoted in FORBES article ‘Allegations Of Sexual Harassment Made By Former Cuomo Aides Should Raise Red Flags For Business Leaders’ by Edward Segal
The recent allegations of sexual harassment that were made against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo by two former aides should immediately raise red flags for business leaders on how their companies should prevent, respond to, and manage this type of crisis in the workplace.
Beyond the harmful headlines, charges of sexual harassment can damage employee morale, make it harder to recruit and retain workers, and lead to litigation and lawsuits.
Be Careful About Culture
Lawrence Spasojevich, an employment lawyer with Aidala, Bertuna & Kamins, said employers need to be vigilant about the culture that is fostered in the workplace.
“Jokes, especially ones that may have targeted an individual’s sex, gender, race, religious affiliation or any other protected characteristic may be acceptable to some but reprehensible to others and should be reviewed with a thorough, impartial investigation.
Employers should strive to be a place that values the professionalism of the workforce if it intends on having a professional workforce,” he said.
