Katz, Marshall & Banks is representing 40 former employees of the Washington Football Team.
The clients have alleged a toxic and abusive work environment, going back 20 years, in which women were subjected to pervasive sexual harassment and abuse. The harassment included the production of lewd videos of team cheerleaders, made without their knowledge or consent.
The former employees describe a toxic workplace and a culture of fear that was instilled from team owner Dan Snyder and his leadership team.
The Washington Post recounted the disturbing details in a series of explosive articles.
After the first Washington Post article on the Washington Football Team’s hostile environment appeared in July 2020, the team hired a law firm to conduct an independent review. That investigation was taken over in August by the National Football League, which has said it will take appropriate action based on the results of the investigation.
