Overview

Fashion is a $1.2 trillion global industry, with more than $250 billion spent annually on fashion in the United States, according to industry analysts.  This prominent industry involves employees and independent contractors at every level - from designers, to models, to retail staff.  In recent years, employment issues in fashion have been highly publicized and can, if not handled properly, negatively harm the reputation of fashion enterprises.  From allegations of sexual harassment to class action lawsuits, employment law issues have become front and center for the fashion community.

In this One Hour Briefing, Jessica Taub Rosenberg of Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP will explore:

  • The mischaracterization of employees in the fashion world;
  • Litigation surrounding unpaid internships; and
  • How sexual harassment and discrimination cases have impacted the industry.
