A sexual harassment claim has been brought by four employees of New York nightclubs Tenjune and Simyone Lounge.
The owner is accused of making unwanted sexual advances and requesting sexual favors from the women. He is also accused of luring two of the women away from cameras and the public, and then ordering them to expose themselves. He allegedly barred the women from leaving and forced them to touch him inappropriately.
Three of the women are afraid to return to work and the fourth is working but fears continued sexual harassment and retaliation.
Sexual harassment and retaliation are prohibited by the New York City Human Rights Law and should not be not be tolerated. If you feel that you may be the victim of sexual harassment or retaliation in the workplace, contact Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP.
