Harvey Weinstein’s contract ‘protected him from sexual harassment allegations’

Reminiscent of the notorious Dennis Kozlowski contract at Tyco that provided that the only reason Mr. Kozlowski could be fired for cause was if he was convicted “of a felony that is materially and demonstrably injurious to the company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, monetarily or otherwise,”

Harvey Weinstein had a contract drawn up in 2015, in which the board of his film company could not terminate his employment over sexual harassment claims if he paid off women to silence them – as long as he paid out the money himself, according to reports. 

This is per se malpractice by the board and any director who agreed to it should be barred from ever serving on a board again and liable for damages as an accessory to abuse.
