#MeToo: Third Circuit Chisels Away At Employers’ Faragher-Ellerth Defense

Brody and Associates, LLC • November 01, 2018
With the rise of the #MeToo movement, employers everywhere are smartly taking the time to learn their duties and responsibilities when it comes to preventing sexual harassment.

Boca Raton, 524 U.S. 775 (1998), and Burlington Industries, Inc. v. Ellerth, 524 U.S. 742 (1998). While this defense can be helpful, its scope is being narrowed in the courts. This may be a sign of the times.
