Harvey Weinstein Victims to Receive Parts of the $19 Million Settlement

A number of women who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault are set to receive part of a $19 million settlement.

The payout is part of a deal by the New York state attorney general’s office in its class action lawsuit against The Weinstein Company, Page Six reports.

Furthermore, ex employees who “experienced a hostile work environment, sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination” are eligible for part of the compensation fund, but the agreement still needs to be approved by the district court.

The AG’s office also said the agreement will wipe out any confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements Harvey’s victims signed.

For years, assistants working for Weinstein “were exposed to and required to facilitate” sexual encounters for him “as a condition of employment,” the office has said.

“Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company failed their female employees,”  New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement. “After all the harassment, threats, and discrimination, these survivors are finally receiving some justice.”

The disgraced movie-mogul was sentenced to 23 years in prison in March. Over 100 women have accused him of harassment and sexual misconduct.

Finally, some justice.
