The legal landscape of the workplace is undergoing rapid transformation. In the Media & Entertainment industry, the fallout from workplace disruptions resulting from the heightened sensitivity brought on by the #MeToo movement can be amplified by the public nature of the industry itself. Whether currently facing harassment allegations, potentially susceptible to an increase in claims, or just trying to implement preventative policies and practices, it is critical to create a positive culture for the firm, employees and all with whom they interact in the workplace.
