Federal Lawsuit Filed Against CBS Local Affiliate
September 14, 2018
Michele Gillen, whose career at the affiliate spans more than 20 years, joins a growing chorus of sexual harassment and discrimination claims by female staff. According to the complaint filed in federal court in Miami, Gillen faced repeated instances of
age and sex discrimination by management and younger male reporters alike.
Her repeated complaints to the company’s human resources department went unanswered, according to the complaint. One HR representative told her she couldn’t claim discrimination because her news director was female.
Gillen is represented by Louise Caro of Napoli Shkolnik in Coconut Grove.
