Female Writer Accused Patricia Heaton’s Husband of Sexual Misconduct

November 18th, 2019
businessman harassment

A female writer accused actress Patricia Heaton’s husband, producer David Hunt, of sexual misconduct while working on the CBS television show, “Carole’s Second Act,” in which Heaton stars. The former writer alleged that Hunt inappropriately touched her and that the network failed to properly handle her complaints. She claims that after she and a female producer made the reports about Hunt to her superiors that she experienced retaliation by being kept out of rehearsals and losing responsibilities at her job. She resigned from her position in October because of the alleged retaliation. The network reported that their investigation into perceived retaliatory practices revealed no substantial evidence.

Sexual misconduct and harassment, which may include inappropriate physical contact or derogatory remarks, continues to arise in a variety of industries despite the onslaught of media coverage on the subject and efforts to provide workplace training to employees.   In some cases, victims of this type of behavior may report the claims to their bosses or employers, and the situation may be resolved. Unfortunately, in other cases, victims may experience retaliation from speaking out against the harassment or misconduct in the form of demotions, loss of responsibilities, a hostile work environment, and even wrongful termination.
