As the national conversation on sexual harassment continues, Toronto employment lawyer Kevin Marshall says it’s important not to lose sight of the presumption of innocence and the need for thorough investigations.
The topic is one that’s been leading discussions in recent weeks, arising from the dismissal of Jian Ghomeshi as a CBC Radio host over allegations of sexual abuse. Ghomeshi says the allegations are untrue.
More recently, two Liberal members of Parliament were suspended from caucus after facing harassment allegations from two NDP MPs. Both Liberal MPs deny the allegations against them.
