Los Angeles [U.S.A], Oct. 17 (ANI): The Producers Guild of America has voted unanimously to expel Harvey Weinstein.
Calling, "sexual harassment of any type completely unacceptable," the PGA announced that its national board and officers has created an Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force "specifically charged with researching and proposing substantive and effective solutions to sexual harassment in the entertainment industry."
The PGA's constitution describes the process the guild must go through before it can expel a member.
Any member facing expulsion must be given a copy of the charges 15 days before the termination and has the right to appear before the board in person at least five days before the termination takes place.
Weinstein will be given the opportunity to respond before the Guild makes its final determination on November 6, 2017.
Since the allegations emerged this month, Hollywood has largely turned its back on Weinstein.
