Boss Ailes has unlawfully retaliated against Carlson and sabotaged her career because she refused his sexual advances and complained about severe and pervasive sexual harassment.Ailes retaliated against Carlson in various ways, as described below, including by
terminating her employment on June 23, 2016, and, prior thereto, by, among other things,ostracizing, marginalizing and shunning her after making clear to her that these problems?would not have existed, and could be solved, if she had a sexual relationship with him. When Carlson met with Ailes to discuss the discriminatory treatment to which shewas being subjected, Ailes stated: think you and I should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago and then you?d be good and better and I?d be good and better, adding that sometimes problems are easier to solve? that way. Carlson rebuffed Ailes? sexual demands at that meeting, and nine months later, Ailes ended her career at Fox News.
