Florham Park counsel Bill Horwitz wrote an article for BNA’s Corporate Counsel Weekly titled, “In Case Involving Employer’s Poor Handling of Sexual Harassment Allegation, Second Circuit Resolves Two Novel Issues.”

Bill discusses the case of Townsend v. Benjamin Enterprises, Inc., in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit resolved two issues of first impression. Bill’s article outlines the facts of the case and the court’s observations.

He notes that the most important takeaway from the decision may be the important guidance for employers of how not to address sexual harassment in the workplace.
