Jackie Ford, a partner in the Vorys Houston office and member of the labor and employment group, was interviewed for a story for WVTF Public Radio in Virginia titled “LG Fairfax Still on Leave as His Law Firm Investigates.”
The story states:
“Jackie Ford is an employment lawyer who, for more than 20 years, has conducted sexual harassment investigations. Ford is not involved in the Fairfax case, but as an outside expert says the ultimate question for an employer in this situation is whether the individual in question represents a threat.
‘Does it represent a threat of bad behavior or even criminal behavior toward any of my other employees or clients?’ Ford explains, ‘And does it present the risk of any liability for my organization or both?’
Fords adds that the law firm’s investigation is likely to be broader than just looking into the two allegations against Fairfax, to include his behavior while employed by the firm. She also says hiring outside counsel to investigate is an attempt to be unbiased.”
