Levin said that in his last contract, from two years ago, if Weinstein is sued for sexual harassment or any other kind of misdeed, and the company is forced to pay a judgement, he can keep his job.

"He has to pay the company back what it paid the victim... and pay a fine," Levin said on The Story.

He said Weinstein's prospective fines begin at $250,000 for the first settlement, increasing another $250,000 for each future judgment, with the fourth or further judgments costing him a $1 million fine.

"The company structured a contract that essentially allowed for sexual harassment if you're willing to pay a monetary price," Levin said.

He and Martha MacCallum also discussed whether Weinstein would actually have a case for wrongful termination, since the company fired him after the allegations began snowballing.
