Six former employees of Washington Commanders, including four with roles in marketing, allege workplace misconduct

Six former employees of Washington Commanders, including four with roles in marketing, allege workplace misconduct

by | Feb 4, 2022

Six former employees of the Washington Commanders, including four who had roles in marketing, joined leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Oversight Committee on Thursday for a roundtable discussion about workplace misconduct inside the organization, reports CBS Sports.

Seven months after the NFL announced the completion of its own investigation into the franchise, “the roundtable unveiled both new allegations — including claims of inappropriate behavior by team owner Daniel Snyder — and a renewed commitment to “potential legislative solutions” focused on holding the NFL and Washington’s “perpetrators of sexual harassment” accountable,” continued the CBS Sports post.

“The employees on hand included Emily Applegate, former marketing coordinator; Brad Baker, former video production manager; Melanie Coburn, former cheerleader and director of marketing; Rachel Engleson, former director of marketing and client relations; Tiffani A. Johnston, former cheerleader and marketing manager; and Ana Nunez, former coordinator of business development,” states CBS Sports.

“We launched this investigation because the NFL has not been transparent about the workplace misconduct issues it uncovered within [Washington],” said Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois in a statement that preceded testimony from the ex-staffers. “These victims are bravely coming forward with their stories, sharing details of despicable abuse in their workplace. … Our investigation will continue until the perpetrators of sexual harassment are held accountable.”

According to CBS Sports, Applegate, shown above,  alleged she was harassed “on a daily basis” by the team’s former chief marketing officer.

According to LinkedIn, Applegate now is a J.D. Candidate at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, Texas.
