NFL Network settles sexual harassment lawsuit

Wisconsin has been the home of more than one Super Bowl victory parade. With a new season underway, Green Bay Packers’ fans hope that the celebrations will return to The Badger State.

If it does, several former players will not be part of the NFL Network’s coverage. The network recently announced that it has reached a settlement in the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former employee who said she had been harassed in the workplace by Marshall Faulk, Warren Sapp, Donovan McNabb, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans.

Faulk, Taylor or Evans were suspended late last year during an investigation of the harassment allegations. They will not return to NFL Network, a recent news report stated. ESPN later fired McNabb and former baseball star Eric Davis (also mentioned in the lawsuit).

The former wardrobe stylist for NFL Network said several of the company’s employees groped her and made sexually explicit comments. She was also sent nude photos by some of the former players, she said in her suit.

A former executive producer for the network was also named in the lawsuit.

Early this year, the NFL Network denied the woman’s allegations and claimed she "approved, consented to, authorized, and/or ratified" the comments and actions.

If you have been subjected to sexual harassment in the form of lewd comments, unwanted touching, comments about your appearance, inappropriate photos or demands for sexual favors, speak to an experienced Milwaukee employment law attorney about how to protect yourself, your career and your right to compensation.
