Suspended Grammys CEO alleges discrimination, harassment

After all, the #MeToo movement developed out of revelations about alleged harassment and assaults committed by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Many of the harassment victims who have since come forward have included high-profile executives, professionals and actors. Now, the Grammy Awards are also coming under scrutiny after the suspended CEO of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences filed a workplace discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleging that she was retaliated against for reporting unwanted sexual advances.

The report states that most employers don't emphasize avoiding discrimination based on age because laws protecting older workers are relatively weak.

Workers in the United States can either be labeled as exempt or nonexempt based on the details of their employment.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) oversees these two employment types and makes many other distinctions between the two.
