The #MeToo hashtag has been viewed as a rallying cry against such conduct and its momentum suggests a mindset determined to call out unacceptable behaviour in the workplace. Whilst the headlines are dominated by high profile individuals and companies, the reality is that sexual harassment allegations can happen in any industry and in companies of all sizes.
