However, as a former HR executive, I also have compassion and want to help anyone out there who is concerned about how to move forward.
Especially, when the person assumes leadership responsibility.
SAN FRANCISCO — Popular mobile dating app Tinder is being sued for sexual harassment and discrimination by a former marketing executive.
Whitney Wolfe, Tinder's former marketing vice president, claims she was subjected to a pattern of abusive behavior including inappropriate private messages from a company co-founder while working at Tinder.
In the suit, she alleges Tinder co-founder and marketing chief Justin Mateen stripped Wolfe of her co-founder title, telling her that having a "24‐year-old girl" as a co-founder made the company "seem like a joke."Wolfe also alleges Mateen called her a "whore" in front of Chief Executive Officer Sean Rad. When she complained, Wolfe said she was forced out of the company.
The case was filed on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court."I had hoped this would be resolved confidentially, but after months of failed attempts, I have decided to pursue this suit," Wolfe said in a statement.It's becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of everyone who has been accused.
