Nike executives were accused of intentionally targeting female employees while they were intoxicated, and the company was accused of ignoring complaints female workers being sexually harassed.
A lawsuit was filed by former employees Sara Johnston and Kelly Cahill.
According to the complaint, which was filed in a United States District Court, the incidents occurred at the sporting company’s headquarters in Oregon, where male executives allegedly subjected the women to sexual advances.
According to the New York Post, in one case, a female employee witnessed an executive receiving oral sex from a colleague in the campus gym.
Another female employee claimed that male coworkers told her she needed to dress “sexier” and show more skin at work.
Other female employees were also invited to work dinners where executives allegedly hoped they would sleep with them after a while.
Several women participated in an anonymous survey to discuss gender discrimination and sexual harassment situations.
The women did not report the incidents to Human Resources because they believed their claims would be dismissed.
