Vice Executives Put on Leave Due to Sexual Harassment Allegations

January 3rd, 2018

Vice Executives Put on Leave Due to Sexual Harassment AllegationsTwo executives from Vice Media have been put on leave due to sexual harassment allegations from former employees. Both Co-President Andrew Creighton and Chief Digital Officer Mike Germano were put on leave. In 2016, a former employee claimed that she was fired after rejecting a relationship with Creighton. Vice denied the claim, but she was paid a settlement of more than $130,000. At a work event in 2014, Germano apparently pulled an employee onto his lap, but apologized for the act after the incident was reported to the Human Resources department. Another prospective worker accused him of refusing to hire her after she rebuffed his sexual advances. During Christmas weekend, a news story exposed Vice Media’s toxic workplace culture, which included sexual harassment and misconduct allegations. Vice plans to introduce a mandatory sexual harassment training program to their staff later this week.

Toxic workplace culture takes a toll on employees, and, ultimately, could be detrimental to a business’s success. Morale among employees may decrease when sexual harassment and other inappropriate and uncomfortable practices occur, which affects the productivity as well. Victims of workplace sexual harassment may experience emotional trauma, and fear that their careers and livelihoods are at stake.
