We have seen a significant increase recently in sexual harassment cases involving senior corporate executives. When sexual harassment is perpetrated by a member of the C-Suite (for example, the CEO, COO, President, Owner or another senior corporate executive), liability is automatic and strict. This is because the law draws no distinction between the corporate entity and the executive officers who control it for purposes of sexual harassment liability. Such officers are considered the corporation’s proxy or alter-ego. If you have been sexually harassed or assaulted by a senior corporate officer at work, you may have important rights under the law.
