NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 5, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Working Solutions Law Firm, a team of top-rated attorneys working on employment law including sexual harassment issues in New York and New Jersey at https://www.workingsolutionsnyc.com/, has announced new litigation in the US District Court Southern District of New York. The case is Civil Action No. 1:23-cv-8190, and concerns Ms. Caroline Weeks vs. PointsBet USA.
“Every worker, no matter what industry, is entitled by law to a fair and harassment-free working environment,” remarked Chris Q. Davis, Managing Partner. “This case alleges a prominent employee was illegally subjected to sexual harassment at work.”
Here is background on this litigation. Caroline Weeks accepted a role as Senior Player Development Manager with PointsBet USA in New York in 2022. During her tenure, she allegedly faced pay disparities in comparison to her male colleagues and reported ongoing alleged sexual harassment from her supervisor. Additionally, Ms. Weeks claimed to have experienced inappropriate behavior from current and potential PointsBet clients during company events. Despite her efforts to communicate these issues, she alleges that the company took insufficient actions to address them. Seeking an internal change, she was offered a position of lower stature and pay. By October 2022, citing the alleged ongoing harassment and perceived inadequate response from the company, Ms. Weeks resigned. It’s emphasized that these are allegations with legal proceedings pending.
Interested persons, including journalists, are encouraged to visit the official court website or reach out to the law firm for comment; attorney Rachel Haskell (https://www.workingsolutionsnyc.com/our-lawyers/rachel-haskell) is lead attorney.
