The “Me Too” movement has had an acute impact on our society and workforces, causing many employers to reassess their organizational culture and approach to handling sexual misconduct complaints against employees and senior executives.
King & Spalding is well-situated to guide companies through that process. Our lawyers—including a Former Deputy Attorney General and multiple former U.S. Attorneys, as well as former federal prosecutors and experienced employment lawyers—have decades of experience conducting highly confidential and sensitive investigations of alleged wrongdoing by employees and senior-level executives, including allegations of sexual harassment, stalking and assault.
Our experience includes advising organizations about appropriate policies and procedures to create a positive organizational culture and process to review and adjudicate complaints; creating and implementing best-in-class compliance programs “from the ground up”; serving as the day-to-day support system for in-house counsel and compliance departments; conducting neutral fact investigations; and advising clients regarding appropriate remedial action, and negotiating separations where warranted, including in situations where the accused has made cross-allegations of discrimination.
