At least 414 executives and employees have been implicated in the past 18 months, new data shows. Only seven were women.
The #MeToo movement keeps taking names.
At least 414 high up executives and employees across a number of industries have been accused of sexual misconduct through the #MeToo movement in the past 18 months, according to data from a New York-based crisis consulting firm, as reported by Time. Only seven of the 414 accused are women.
Researchers examined national news stories targeting people accused of sexual harassment and other workplace misconduct, including celebrities such as Louis C.K., and Bill Cosby, as well as corporate executives such as former Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, who was forced out of the company last week after his affair with an employee was revealed.
The report found that there has been an uptick in fired employees and managers following the bombshell sexual harassment accusations levied against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein last October. Out of the 414 people who were implicated in misconduct,190 were fired or left their employer; another 122 were suspended, put on leave or are being investigated; and 69 of them have faced no ramifications since December 2016, according to the new report.
