It also cites “excessive workplace drinking that fosters unwanted sexual advances to women, banter about male employees having sexual encounters, and groping female employees’ breasts.

The suit also names Sonal Patel and Danny Nguyen and Derek Ingalls, Ben Kilgore and Ben Kilgore as the perpetrators of harassment in the company’s IT department. Doe claims that she tried to report the harassment to human resources but was rebuffed and even passed over for promotion. Warning about sexual harassment: You can find the 28-page document here.
