settled a sexual harassment complaint by a former employee in September against its biggest prime time-star, #BilloReilly
, and the division’s co-president, Bill Abernethy.
Former Fox News personality #JulietHuddy
claimed in a letter from her lawyers sent last August that her opportunities at the company ended in retaliation for not submitting to sexual advances by O’Reilly that began in 2011. She also said Abernethy had made unwanted advances towards her.
No lawsuit was filed against O’Reilly or Abernethy, who was promoted to his post in August after the letter was received and was signed to a long-term contract following the settlement payment made in September. The agreement was first reported on the website Lawnewz.com.
The settlement shows the sexual harassment issue continues to shadow Fox News even after the ouster of former Chairman #RogerAiles
, who was accused of sexual harassment in a lawsuit by former anchor #GretchenCarlson
