Bloomberg’s Company Faced Years of Sexual Discrimination and Harassment Lawsuits

HeadlineFeb 17, 2020

Mike Bloomberg continues to come under renewed scrutiny for his past comments and positions, including promoting “stop-and-frisk” and his support for redlining. On Saturday, The Washington Post reported multiple lawsuits have been filed over the years alleging that women were discriminated against at Bloomberg’s company, including one case filed by a former employee who blamed Bloomberg for creating a culture of sexual harassment and degradation. Bloomberg and his organizations have been defendants in almost 40 sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuits. We’ll have more on this and the candidacy of Mike Bloomberg after headlines.
