Brendan Fraser States that HFPA Denied Sexual Harassment Claims

June 7th, 2018

Brendan Fraser States that HFPA Denied Sexual Harassment ClaimsActor Brendan Fraser states that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) denied the sexual harassment claims that he brought against a member of their organization in 2003. The HFPA, which helms the annual Golden Globes presentations, investigated the claim after Fraser revealed the incident in a magazine last year. Allegedly, the journalist Philip Berk, associated with the HFPA, groped Brendan Fraser at a group event back in 2003, which the journalist claims was a joke. After an investigation regarding this claim and many others in the entertainment industry, the HFPA issued a statement offering an apology and that the case was closed. Berk received no disciplinary action from HFPA, and Fraser refused to sign the joint statement because he was not privy to the contents of the report investigating the groping incident.

If an incident involving sexual harassment or misconduct occurs at a work event or industry conference, it falls under the category of workplace sexual harassment. In settings where the work atmosphere may mirror a party or another casual outing, employees and other industry professionals may engage in behavior that would not be otherwise acceptable at work. Unfortunately, perpetrators may feel there is more leniency to make unacceptable advances or crude remarks toward victims when they are in a non-traditional work setting.
