Zillow Sued for Sexual Harassment and Wrongful Termination by Fired Female Employee

GeekWire has published an article announcing the lawsuit filed by former Zillow employee Rachel Kremer, which accuses the real estate website of fostering an “adult frat house” culture that humiliated female employees and that  “ratifyied” the alleged hostile work environment by failing to take action against the managers and other employees who created it.

Kremer is represented by the law firms of Mark Geragos and Bobby Samini. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court, describes self-documenting behavior by Zillow male employees, via emails, text messages and sexually-explicit photos that, if true, will be served up as evidence by Ms. Kremer’s attorneys.

GeekWire should be commended for actually including a copy of the lawsuit on its website, unlike the rest of the media, which took the lazy approach and omitted the filing.

Geragos and Geragos has brought two additional lawsuits against Zillow, which were reported on in an earlier post on the California Real Estate Fraud Report.

Zillow, which has won awards by the Orange County Business Journal and the Orange County Register for being “one of the best places to work,” vigorously denies the allegations. If the allegations are found to be true by the trier of fact, doesn’t it make you wonder what the criteria were to win such awards?
