Four former workers are suing the National Association of Professional Women for alleged sexual harassment.
Four former employees of the National Association of Professional Women, a women’s networking group, have sued the organization for alleged sexual harassment. Their former manager, Krissy L. DeMonte, allegedly pinched and grabbed their buttocks and called them vulgar names. After they complained, the lawsuit said, the employees were then fired or forced to resign due to hostile work conditions. In a separate lawsuit filed in January, another employee claimed that DeMonte regularly came up behind her while she was sitting at her desk, touched and rubbed her neck, and then moved her hands “to touch, rub and/or feel the top” of her breasts.
