Why David Letterman Could Face a Hostile Work Environment Lawsuit

Following David Letterman’s admission of having sex with Stephanie Birkitt and several of his other employees, David Letterman might find himself facing sexual harassment and hostile work environment lawsuits from his employees on the grounds of favoritism. 

On the CBS Early Show Saturday, CBS legal analyst Lisa Bloom said, “… [U]nder sexual harassment law, there is a claim for harassment if somebody can come forward and say, ‘The boss was sleeping with other employees [and] they got favors and advantages that I didn’t get.”

Bloom added, “Nobody has raised a claim, but there’s always that issue lingering out there.  So, this is why every company in the United States has a policy that an employer should not be having sexual relations with a subordinate, because it has the potential to create a hostile work environment.”

  1. Letterman is fine; he never was the “Family Values” type. Yes, he probably cheated on his girlfriend now wife. But at least he does go around claiming he is Mr. “Family Values” like some of our politicians/ preachers (can you just see the grin on all “Fake News” reporters/ commentators and the Palin fringe). This has been a tough summer, for Dave, for our economy but at least he did not end up on the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Sanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC). Did I miss the NOW statement of outrage with Senator John Ensign? Are they relevant anymore?
