FNC Settles Chillemi Suit For $225,000

Following up on this weekend’s Variety report:

The AP says Fox News “has settled a lawsuit that asserted that female employees were subjected to vulgarities and obscenities, including derogatory comments about pregnant women, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Monday.”

More: “The settlement, submitted for approval in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, includes $225,000 for four women who said they were subjected by a Fox vice president to a sexually hostile workplace, the EEOC said in a statement. It also includes steps, such as training and revised policies, to prevent any future discrimination and retaliation.”

> Update: 4:23pm: “Starting in January 2007, Fox News will be required to change its policies and procedures and provide training on federal discrimination law, court records say. The vice president will be required to participate in an individual training session starting in May 2007.” –Crain’s New York Business The Crain’s report was incorrect, FNC says.
