Celebrity Chef Michael Chiarello Allegedly Sexually Harassed Employees
According to two recent lawsuits, Celebrity Chef and Food Network host allegedly sexually harassed employees and skimped out on paying them for their work and overtime hours.
One lawsuit goes as far as saying he compared drinking martinis to a woman’s breasts, stating that one was too few and three were too many (Total Recall style?) It also says he told managers to hire only staff that were sexually appealing to them.
The second lawsuit is the one that mentions problems with getting paid for their normal hours and overtime hours.
A spokesperson for the Chef claims his client is innocent and will be vigorously defending himself.
