Washington DC NFL Team Addresses Sexual Harassment Claims

15 former female employees of the Washington DC NFL franchise told The Washington Post that they were sexually harassed during their employment with the team. Fourteen of the 15 women signed nondisclosure agreements and spoke anonymously due to their concerns about legal retribution. The allegations include routine workplace discussions of the physical appearance of female colleagues and requests of female employees to wear revealing clothing in order to close sales deals.

The Post reporting also indicated that team owner Dan Snyder’s Human Resource department was understaffed – one full-time employee responsible for 220 employees who also performs administrative duties at the team’s headquarters. The reporting also indicated that Snyder himself fostered a “sophomoric culture of verbal abuse among top executives.”

The team said in a statement that it takes issues of employee conduct seriously and added, “While we do not speak to specific employee situations publicly, when new allegations of conduct are brought forward that are contrary to these policies, we address them promptly.” Snyder hired a Washington DC law firm to review the club's culture, policies and allegations of workplace misconduct and three front office employees are no longer with the organization.
