The “frat-boy culture” at the $20 billion shared-office-space company “WeWork” breeds drunken sexual misconduct, according to a former employee who’s suing over multiple alleged attacks.
Ruby Anaya, 33, was “director of culture” for WeWork for the past four years until her ouster in August.
Anaya says she was sexually assaulted twice over the course of a few months at booze-fueled, mandatory-attendance company events.
Anaya reported both incidents to the company’s human resources department, according to court papers. But nothing was done, the suit says.
She was then fired after complaining about the company’s lack of response to the incidents, Anaya says in the Manhattan Supreme Court suit seeking unspecified damages.
A WeWork spokeswoman said, “These claims against WeWork are meritless and we will fight this lawsuit. WeWork investigated this employee’s complaints, took appropriate action, and this employee was terminated solely because of her poor performance.”
