Financial firm: a blend of alcohol and desire in court battle

1 min read

TLDR: A Long Island financial advisory firm is facing a $15 million lawsuit filed by an employee who claims that the company is a “boiling, alcohol-fueled sexual cauldron.” The employee alleges that senior-level partners at the firm engaged in sexual harassment and created a hostile work environment, including making bets on who would sleep with a certain receptionist. The employee also accuses the executives of fashioning themselves after Jordan Belfort, the real-life “Wolf of Wall Street.” The firm denies the allegations, stating that the claims have been fully investigated and addressed.
