Charlie Rose Sexually Harassed 3 CBS Staffers, Suit Claims

Charlie Rose Sexually Harassed 3 CBS Staffers, Suit Claims Charlie Rose Sexually Harassed 3 CBS Staffers, Suit Claims

There's a new lawsuit in the Charlie Rose sexual harassment case.

CBS News did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The suit said that when Ms. Harris wore a miniskirt covered in images of roses, he told her "that the roses on her skirt are his roses".

Rose was sacked in November of 2017 after the Post published a lengthy investigation into allegations of sexual harassment against him.

It is worth noting that the lawsuit in question may not necessarily be the last one, as the three women who sued the former CBS anchor are not the only women who accused him of improper behavior.

The three women claim Rose had a nasty side, berating them for booking the incorrect flights and calling them idiots. With the stories that have come out about the likes of Rose, Matt Lauer and Mark Halperin, the networks are making strides but women need to know they can report wrongdoings without repercussions, she said.

CBS News said Rose's employment was "terminated" after "extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior".

Since Rose was sacked, CBS News said it has taken steps to ensure a safer workplace, including mandatory misconduct training.

CBS News has selected Dickerson as Charlie Rose's replacement on the "CBS This Morning" program, pairing him with current anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.

Ms. Harris and Ms. McNeal assert that Mr. CBS "did not investigate the complaint, and did not take any remedial action", the lawsuit alleges. The lawsuit offered more than a dozen specific examples of Rose's alleged misbehaviour, including caressing all three women on separate occasions.

Harris, McNeal and Wei all allege Rose physically and verbally sexually harassed them and also faced verbal abuse from the host. Wei filed an HR complaint, and was subsequently moved to a different assignment. Her complaint included allegations against Kadro, whom she said kicked her chair as a show of intimidation. The executive assistant to the show's new producer, Ryan Kadro, said she told her boss about the attention Rose was paying to the young woman, and said he did not seem alarmed. Ms. Wei has been on medical leave since March, the suit said.

CBS did not provide immediate comment on the lawsuit Friday.

Eleanor McManus, co-founder of Press Forward, a group of women who have been victims of sexual misconduct in newsrooms, said the Post report illustrated a systematic problem across news organizations that needed to be addressed.

Goldberg said he first reached out to CBS and Rose in February to make them aware of the potential claims.

The network sacked Rose, once one of America's most well-respected television news hosts, on November 21, less than 24 hours after eight women leveled sexual harassment accusations against him in The Washington Post.
