Executive sexual harassment case

11 Jul, 2014

Yahoo engineer Nan Shi files a lawsuit against Yahoo for allegedly firing her for reporting sexual harassment. She accuses Maria Zhang, senior director of engineering at Yahoo Mobile, of forcing her to engage in sex acts and giving her negative performance reviews for refusing. A Yahoo spokesperson denies the allegations:

There is absolutely no basis or truth to the allegations against Maria Zhang. Maria is an exemplary Yahoo executive and we intend to fight vigorously to clear her name.
