    Harvey Weinstein has been banned for life from the producers guild.

    The Producers Guild of America announced Monday that Weinstein had resigned his membership, and the group opted to impose a lifetime ban on him. 

    "This unprecedented step is a reflection of the seriousness with which the Guild regards the numerous reports of Mr. Weinstein’s decades of reprehensible conduct," the guild said in a statement. "Sexual harassment can no longer be tolerated in our industry or within the ranks of Producers Guild membership."

    The guild's board of directors had previously voted unanimously earlier this month to initiate termination proceedings against Weinstein.

    Dozens of women, including actresses Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, while several others have accused the Oscar winner of raping them.

    Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister has said the producer denies all allegations of non-consensual sex.

    The guild added that it has "created the Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force specifically charged with researching and proposing substantive and effective solutions to combat sexual harassment in the entertainment industry."
