While the popular dating app Tinder may have brought Wisconsin residents together, its founder is in hot water after a former marketing executive has made serious allegations against him. According to the former executive, she was subjected to sexual harassment and stripped of her title as co-founder.
The former marketing vice president said that her co-founder said that she could not be listed as a co-founder because having a 24-year-old girl with this title made the company look like a joke. Additionally, she says that the co-founder degraded her in front of the chief executive officer of the company and subjected her to inappropriate sexual comments on a routine basis.
Individuals who have been subjected to lewd comments, unwanted sexual advances or unlawful retaliation may decide to pursue a sexual harassment case. An employment law attorney may be able to help gather evidence to prove the claims of an employee who has been subjected to this type of behavior.
