CBS Investigative Reporter Sues Station for Discrimination
September 14, 2018
Investigative Reporter Michele Gillen began reporting discrimination and bullying in 2010. She filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2016 and was given the green light to sue this August. She’s seeking lost wages and wants to be reinstated with full benefits.
When she reported the discrimination to the senior vice president of human resources in New York, Gillen says she was
told “You can’t claim discrimination, you have a female news director.”
