Chicago anti-violence worker sues employer over harassment allegations

If true, then someone doesn't get the point.

From WGN-TV:
A prominent organization fighting violence on Chicago’s streets is facing allegations of sexual harassment.

In the lawsuit, a worker at Cure Violence claimed she was repeatedly subjected to harassment over the past five years.

Cure Violence uses ex-offenders to go out into the community to prevent violence. One of the organization’s leaders is at the center of the allegations. WGN News is not naming him because he has not been criminally charged with sexual harassment or abuse.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a current worker at Cure Violence, but several other women are expected to be added later. Three women spoke at a news conference Wednesday and detailed incidents in which they said they were sexually harassed, even assaulted, and they said they were retailed against when they reported him to human resources.
