WWE Settles with Former Employee Over Sexual Harassment Claims

– You may remember a story last year about a female WWE employee, Global Licensing Coordinator Fara D’Angelo, who claimed she was sexually harassed by a married male co-worker around WrestleMania time. The co-worker was fired and D’Angelo left the company.

The lawsuit against WWE by D’Angelo was recently settled out of court with the terms undisclosed.

D’Angelo complained to her manager at WWE about the alleged sexual harassment and claimed she was encouraged to find another job somewhere else. She then went to WWE’s Human Resources department and eventually left the company. D’Angelo said that WWE offered her a raise and promotion if she would drop the suit and return to work. She declined the offer and filed the suit, which was recently settled out of court.
