Golloher claims she tried to report the treatment last month following a series of harassment reports related to former anchor Bill O'Reilly, but within 24 hours of emailing an attorney about those complaints, she was informed by a supervisor that her contract would not be renewed and her position would be eliminated.

'Jessica Golloher's claims are without merit. Is it feasible to give you a call this week?

The case is Golloher v. Twenty-First Century Fox Inc., New York State Supreme Court, New York County.

However, "Ms. Golloher soon learned that Fox, rather than treating complaints of discrimination as worth prompt and confidential consideration, instead used them to paint targets on the backs of employees", the complaint adds.

"[The] Defendants' decision to terminate Ms. Golloher is a transparent act of retaliation and a clear attempt to silence yet another victim of discrimination at Fox", the suit alleges.

"Simply put, any purported desire on the part of Fox to clean up its culture and actually encourage employees to come forward with complaints about discrimination in the workplace is nothing more than a move to salvage its reputation", according to the lawsuit.

In her complaint, Golloher says she encountered persistent discrimination based on her gender, including witnessing deferential treatment being paid to her male colleagues. Golloher was working out of Fox News' Jerusalem Bureau, which was small and did not require both a radio and a television correspondent, the source told LawNewz.com.

The Masters Of The Universe movie is coming to cinemas in 2019!
Whether or not you're happy with that will depend on how much you like Goyer, but here's where things get really interesting. McG , real name Joseph McGinty Nichol, is the latest director to exit the Masters of the Universe franchise reboot.


The complaint by Golloher, the Middle East and North Africa correspondent for Fox News Radio, was filed Thursday in NY state court in Manhattan.

Davis, the lawsuit notes, was sacked from ABC in 1995 for transmitting a sexually explicit photograph over the company computer network.

Golloher also claims her bosses complained that she looked "horrible" in company photos and said she should provide better pictures because she was 'much better looking in person'. She said, for instance, that she was essentially forced to work as an assistant to a male colleague covering the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russian Federation. She claims that even though her termination for "budgetary reasons" isn't effective until August, her assignments are being given to freelancers.

And then when she complained, they fired her.

She says she was relegated her to "secretarial" work and reporting on Moscow's decision to ban lace panties.

Golloher alleges on April 17, she emailed Hirshman asking if she could talk about "issues at FOX". She was apparently contacting the investigator to discuss these concerns.

According to the filing, when she complained about a male anchor's allegedly "rude and disparaging" behavior, she was told there had been similar complaints about the anchor but that she should just 'fly under the radar'. "Specifically, she complained to Davis and Weinbloom about their repeated denials of her requests to travel and report on stories, using such pretexts as unsafe conditions or expense of traveling for the story, yet male reporters were sent to the precise locations she had pitched, often at a much greater economic cost to Fox News".
