Richard Fox, partner and head of Kingsley Napley's Employment
team, was quoted in an article in the French financial and economic publication L'Agefi on 25 July 2019:
Culture has changed. Employers are increasingly aware of this phenomenon and often display zero tolerance for deviant behaviour. In the past, companies might tend to show some understanding, especially when people with high incomes and income in the organisation were involved. This is no longer the case.
For companies and individuals regulated by the FCA, sexual misconduct is just as much a regulatory issue as a financial issue"
