Regina Faul Quoted in Hollywood Reporter Regarding New York State’s Suspension on Time Constraints for Sexual Abuse Cases and the Effect on Employers02/01/2023
Labor & Employment Law Practice Chair, Regina Faul was quoted in the Hollywood Reporter discussing time constraints on sexual abuse cases and the impact on employers.
Regina noted, “Claims may be brought against ‘any party’ for injuries resulting from the abuse, including individual abusers and institutions,” she says. “In other words, any entity that enabled the abuse through what they did or failed to do.”
“The ASA does not revive claims that have been settled or released, however, it does expressly cover claims that were previously dismissed on statute of limitations grounds,” says Faul. “Employers may wish to review past complaints or claims involving sexual offenses to evaluate the extent of possible exposure from potential claims that could be brought pursuant to the ASA. Employers may also wish to consider preserving and collecting documents that might be relevant to any such potential claims.”
