There’s So Much to Les: The Legal Issues Involved in the Les Moonves Saga

Recently disgraced former CBS CEO Les Moonves demanded to arbitrate whether he is entitled to $120,000,000 in severance pay from CBS. The matter raises a number of employment issues that many employers grapple with, including:

  • How to draft employment contracts, severance agreements, anti-harassment policies and codes of ethics
  • How to investigate sexual harassment claims
  • What behavior constitutes sexual harassment
  • What constitutes adequate cooperation with corporate investigations
  • Whether employers should require mandatory arbitration of employment disputes
  • Media relations in high-profile matters in this #MeToo era
