Two points occur to me:
1. When a senior person takes advantage of a junior person it is always the junior who ends up leaving. After all the senior person may be bringing MONEY to the firm whereas the junior may be a mere widget maker. That lesson isn’t going to change.
2. Do you need a sledgehammer to crack a nut? I remember a Christmas party where everyone had had too much to drink and a junior fee earner made a number of improper advances to support staff. They complained, the matter was speedily investigated (but not publicised by the Partners although the complainants told everyone about it) and the offender was asked to apologise individually to each complainant, which was done. That was it. No repeat offending. No police. No lost jobs. No compensation paid. Point made. Everyone moved on.
