Dear elpha community--
I was involved in a sexual harassment case in 2018. I was employed by one of the big 5 tech companies, and the result was a settlement. I was paid to keep my mouth shut.
I was lucky to find work at a startup during the pandemic (I knew someone on the exec team, and they never asked why I left) and now I'm interviewing again. I have an interview with another big 5 tech company, and I'm unsure how to answer if asked why I left.
I'd like to tell the truth: "for legal reasons I can't disclose" but I fear it sounds like I'm a liability to another big tech company.
