Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Urban Outfitters

Here is the complaint filed on August 8, 2014 against Urban Outfitters. Plaintiff alleges that she was subjected to sexual harassment by customers and store personnel, constructive discharge, and retaliation. (Update: In a June 9, 2015 decision, the court denied defendant’s motion to dismiss.)

From her complaint:

From the beginning of Plaintiff’s employment, Defendant [], despite being aware of incidents of customer sexual harassment and placing its female staff in the “line-of-fire” for sexual harassment by male customers, failed to protect its female employees from third party and/or customer sexual harassment. Defendant [] also failed to implement a policy to protect its female employees from sexual harassment even after Plaintiff reported several instances of customer sexual harassment.
