Indeed Faces Rape & Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

A senior account executive at Indeed filed a lawsuit in May alleging that she was raped by a co-worker during a training retreat in 2015 and also faced retaliation and sexual harassment that the company fostered through a “misogynistic” and “hostile” workplace, according to an article in Law360. Her complaint, submitted in New York, alleges that the retaliation, sexual harassment, and rape she suffered violate the Civil Rights Act and New York human rights and labor laws. Furthermore, her complaint states that the sexual harassment was endured by many women, and the ones that went along with it were “rewarded,” whereas the women that didn’t were “ostracized, marginalized and ultimately fired or forced to resign”. This alleged sexual harassment in the workplace, let alone the alleged rape, is extremely severe and absolutely warrented contacting a sexual harassment attorney. Through contacting a sexual harassment lawyer, victims of this horrible sexual harassment and other types of abuse are able to pursue justice. Additionally, the sexual harassment and rape formal complaint alleged retaliation as well, for reporting the sexual harassment and rape. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for employees that face sexual harassment in the workplace to then face retaliation from their employer for reporting it. Luckily, a sexual harassment attorney is able to help in this regard as well. The complaint claims that because of the sexual harassment and rape allegations, the victim was “consistently passed her up for promotions for which she was qualified and didn't allow her to participate in training that would aid her career advancement”. Sexual harassment, sexual discrimination, retaliation, and rape in the workplace are all serious crime and victims may be entitled to significant compensation. If you or anyone you know has faced this type of behavior, it is important that you contact a sexual harassment attorney as soon as possible.
