Network and former talk show host faces employee rights lawsuit

As the number of employees and former employees in New York who claim to have experienced sexual harassment and other employee rights violations increases, prominent people and employers are becoming more likely to be accused of misbehavior. This is part of the growing trend of people who were previously reluctant to come forward now feeling emboldened to do so and filing lawsuits seeking compensation for wrongdoing. When sexual harassment or other illegalities occur at work, those who are affected should think about their rights and understand that time might be of the essence to file a claim. Consulting with a qualified employment firm may prove beneficial when dealing with these circumstances.

The former talk show host Charlie Rose - who lost his job after a series of sexual harassment claims - is named in a new lawsuit along with media outlet Bloomberg. A female makeup artist asserts that she was subjected to a variety of workplace violations when working for Mr. Rose. While working for Mr. Rose for more than two decades, the woman claims she was abused because of her gender and was subjected to sexual harassment, among other inappropriate behaviors.

Mr. Rose had other allegations in the past related to inappropriate workplace behavior. He is denying the makeup artist's claims. Bloomberg is named in the filing because the woman says the network did not act to stem Mr. Rose's activities with employees despite witnessing it multiple times over the years. Bloomberg counters by saying that the woman was never their direct employee.

Everyone has the right t a safe work environment free of repercussions and abuse. There are many forms of sexual harassment that occur in the workplace, though, from unwanted touching to the showing of offensive material. Even lewd comments can constitute sexual harassment. These behaviors, as well as those that are discriminatory in nature, can serve as the basis of a lawsuit.

Although people are more willing to speak out against sexual harassment nowadays, there remains a certain amount of hesitation to seek justice. Many victims think that they will not be believed. Others fear for their future in their chosen careers. Still, it is important to know that workplace misbehavior should not be tolerated and there are options to recover damages and secure protection. Discussing the case with an experienced attorney can assuage those fears and an individual move forward with a case. A law firm that specializes in employment law for employees can give guidance on how to aggressively pursue one of these claims.
