A Lewd Workplace Costs Magazine $15.5 Million

Comments Off

You may work for a hip-hop music magazine, but you can still complain about a lewd work environment.

Jury Slaps Rap Mag With $15.5M Verdict

Music magazine The Source and two former co-owners have been hit with a $15.5 million verdict after a federal jury in Manhattan found that former Source editor and plaintiff Kimberly Osorio was fired in retaliation for complaining about the lewd work environment at the so-called bible of hip-hop.

The jury also held that Osorio had been defamed, but found in favor of the defendants on sexual harassment and discriminatory discharge claims.

I am not sure how many music magazines are published from Florida. In Pinellas County I suspect there may only be the Big Band Review or the Tommy Dorsey Downbeat. However, no employee needs to endure lewdness in the workplace.
