Massage Therapists' Lawsuit Against Favre, Jets May be Short-Lived

The Labor and Employment Practice Group at Bingham Greenebaum Doll has been watching the saga of Brett Favre’s legal woes with much interest, particularly as those woes may contain lessons for employers. 

Last week, two massage therapists filed suit in New York state court against Favre and the Jets.  The suit alleges that Favre sexually harassed the plaintiffs by sending two arguably suggestive text messages to a third massage therapist who is not party to the suit.  The suit further alleges that when the husband of one of the plaintiffs called Favre to complain, the Jets retaliated against the plaintiffs by firing them.

We’ve put together an article with an in-depth look at the complaint and the employment law principles it implicates.  You can read it here.
