Avoid Workplace Discrimination as a Response to the #MeToo Movement, Says New Orleans Partner
The #MeToo movement could cause a backlash that results in companies resisting hiring women or men avoiding women in the workplace. Those responses could result in companies backing into sexual discrimination claims, New Orleans partner Michelle Anderson said in an interview on WWL-TV. Michelle pointed out that the #MeToo movement has never been about women vs. men. It instead should create open workplace dialogue. Businesses should make sure they have relevant harassment and discrimination policies in place, train employees to adhere to appropriate workplace behaviors and promptly address harassment or discrimination accusations if they arise.
