Partner Jonathan Israel was quoted in Entrepreneur’s article, “What Should Employers Do About Misrepresentation?” on February 26, 2015. The article discusses NBC News’ suspension of Brian Williams for his misstatements about his reporting in Iraq. Israel was tapped to discuss legal issues surrounding the suspension and employers’ rights. He was quoted saying, “Bottom line: Misrepresentation, exaggeration or lying is the kind of behavior that reflects a lack of professionalism and poor judgment and breaches the employer’s trust, often irrevocably. Employer decisions must take into account a variety of factors, which are generally a mix of legal, business, and practical considerations.”
