The news being reported on the numerous sexual assaults by Harvey Weinstein is disgusting. Dozens of women have come forth to make claims of sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein!! But, that’s not the only bad thing!! It appears that his employment contract with The Weinstein Company states that he was allowed to commit such crimes as long as he paid up for them!! What!! Well, according to TMZ:
According to the contract, if Weinstein “treated someone improperly in violation of the company’s Code of Conduct,” he must reimburse TWC for settlements or judgments. Additionally, “You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance.”
The contract says as long as Weinstein pays, it constitutes a “cure” for the misconduct and no further action can be taken. Translation — Weinstein could be sued over and over and as long as he wrote a check, he keeps his job.
OMG!!! Hollywood is a weird place man!! How can something like this be ok with a company in this day and age!!? Peep more details HERE!! On the bright side, we’re hearing that Jay Z is attempting to buy Harvey Weinstein’s 23% he owns in the company!!
