With the recent wave of sexual harassment claims involving high profile public figures, and the extensive social and media coverage of this issue, is it possible any longer for employers and insurers to defend these claims successfully? “Defending Sexual Harassment Claims,” the second article of a three-part series released by ALFA International and based on course materials from the 2018 ALFA International EPL & Professional Liability Seminar, explores current trends in sexual harassment litigation, the difficulty of “trying your case in the media,” and offers practical advice on dealing with this hot-button issue.
