LVMH Legal Affairs VP Alleges Sex Harassment At Luxury Co.
Law360 (April 23, 2019, 10:34 PM EDT) -- The vice president of legal affairs and litigation counsel at LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc. says she’s been sexually harassed for years on the job, and when she reported it, the company chastised her, intimidated her and suggested promoting the man who harassed her.
Andowah Newton slapped the multinational luxury goods conglomerate with a sexual harassment and retaliation suit Tuesday in New York state court. In her 28-page complaint, she alleges that an unnamed longtime senior-level manager at LVMH often lurked outside her office, leered at her, made inappropriate comments and even pressed his genitals into her face.
