A Morgan, Lewis & Bockius investigative report published Tuesday about alleged sexual misconduct at NPR offered a rare public glimpse into a company’s internal reporting mechanisms and a law firm’s recommendations on moving forward amid the #MeToo movement.

Morgan Lewis partner Grace Speights in Washington, head of the firm’s labor and employment group, led the team with partner Margaret Rodgers Schmidt and associate Jocelyn Cuttino. NPR’s report on the investigation included a link to the report, and was reportedly distributed to NPR employees. NPR hired Morgan Lewis to lead an independent investigation in the aftermath of harassment claims against a senior editor.

Companies ever more face pressure about how much to open up about internal investigations. NPR said in its piece Tuesday that NPR chief executive Jarl Mohn and chief operating officer Loren Mayor vowed to release the Morgan Lewis report. While specific to NPR, the recommendations offer broad guidance for companies that are taking fresh looks at their own practices.
