3 women who worked with Charlie Rose file sexual harassment lawsuit

Three women are suing Charlie Rose and CBS News for sexual harassment and discrimination

CBS News and Charlie Rose were sued by three former employees over what they called a "blatant and repeated" campaign of sexual harassment by the former host, who was sacked from the network's "CBS This Morning" a year ago after complaints of similar behavior.

The complaint - filed in New York County Supreme Court by former CBS employees Katherine Harris and Sydney McNeal, as well as current employee Yuqing Wei - alleges the network knew about Rose's long history of sexual misconduct around young female coworkers but did nothing to stop it.

Rose repeatedly asked Harris and McNeal about their sex lives and urged the two to have sex with each other, the lawsuit says. His representatives could not immediately be reached for comment Friday.

The plaintiffs in Friday's lawsuit - Katherine Harris, Sydney McNeal and Yuqing Wei - worked in different capacities for Rose previous year while he was a co-host for CBS This Morning, according to the complaint.

After the bombshell story, Rose admitted to some of the allegations but has claimed there was no wrongdoing. "Some of the actions we have taken have been reported publicly, some have not".

Friday's lawsuit is likely to be the first of several. Both Harris and McNeal lost their jobs after Rose's PBS show was canceled in the wake of the Post's reporting. The complaint also accused the network of demoting Wei in retaliation for her complaint against Rose. The lawsuit also alleged that Mr.

When the women objected or complained about his behavior to CBS, Rose threatened to fire them, intimidated them and called them idiots, before sacking two of them after a newspaper article appeared accusing him of harassment, the lawsuit says.

CBS News alleges that it had no HR complaints about Rose - and that it could not "corroborate or confirm" numerous situations described in the report. The lawsuit says that Wei's health suffered as a result of her experience with CBS. With the stories that have come out about the likes of Rose, Matt Lauer and Mark Halperin, the networks are making strides but women need to know they can report wrongdoings without repercussions, she said.

Rose was suspended and later fired by CBS after the Post story broke.

CBS News did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment about the report.

Charlie Rose is a disgraced "CBS This Morning" anchor.

"Ms. Wei also told Mr. Kadro words to the effect of, 'I'm telling you in case you have a lawsuit on your hands, '" the suit alleges.

The network has reportedly hired the law firm Proskauer Rose to help investigate all the claims against its former anchor.

Explaining that she "just wants us to move forward", the morning talk show host added, "That being said, you can't ignore what these women are saying".

In the following three decades, three CBS managers had been made aware of the complaints, according to the Post investigation.

Rose subjected Plaintiffs to repeated, ongoing and unlawful physical and verbal sexual harassment, including without limitation: "(a) sexual touching; (b) sexual comments; and (c) sexual advances", the suit reads.
