Employment Principal Sid Steinberg Examines the Importance of Timing in Sexual Harassment Complaints for the June 12 Legal Intelligencer

In his June 2014 column for The Legal Intelligencer, Employment Principal Sidney R. Steinberg examines a case that underscores the importance of when a sexual harassment complaint is made.

Mr. Steinberg notes that the case "illustrates the importance of an employer following its harassment policy to preserve the Faragher-Ellerth affirmative defense and, from the employee’s perspective, emphasizes the importance of promptly notifying the employer when allegedly harassing behavior occurs."
