A Fox News employee on Thursday sued 21st Century Fox, alleging she was sacked after reporting instances of sexual harassment to the anonymous company hotline.
In a lawsuit filed Thursday in New York State Supreme Court, Jessica Golloher, a Fox Radio correspondent, alleges she was "marginalized and subject to discrimination based on her gender". One example is during the 2014 Winter Olympics when she was based in Moscow, Russia.
"While Fox may claim that the decision to terminate Ms. Golloher was made before she sent the email on April 17, 2017, any such defense would be preposterous given that Ms. Golloher had previously complained about discriminatory treatment and she was provided no notice or warning whatsoever regarding any potential termination".
The lawsuit was filed by attorney Douglas Wigdor, who is representing 19 current and former Fox News employees who have filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the network.
In the lawsuit, filed in NY state court, Golloher says that in April she reported sex discrimination to a lawyer at the firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, which Fox retained previous year to conduct an internal probe of harassment complaints.
A Fox News spokesperson said in an email: "Jessica Golloher's claims are without merit". Her allegations of discrimination and retaliation are baseless. It added, not unexpectedly, "We will vigorously defend the matter".

The previous complaints about discrimination mostly had to do with male colleagues being consistently given opportunities ahead of her.
The correspondent also claims she was bumped to the late reporting shift and forced to cover "the ridiculous and frivolous "panty protests" following a ban on the import of lacy underwear, instead of covering "serious and relevant" news.
Fox news is now facing several sexual harassment and sex discrimination complaints and lawsuits.
She said the company often turned down her story ideas 'using such pretexts as risky conditions or expense of traveling for the story, yet male reporters were sent to the precise locations she had pitched'.
After reporting the firm, the complaint stated that Fox told Golloher that she has to leave in August for cost reduction reasons.
Golloher did not consider complaining to human resources because she had heard the department "was not to be trusted as it had failed to assist employees with valid concerns", according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims Golloher complained to her superiors a number of times, but her grievances were ignored. She also alleges that Fox Radio anchor Dave Anthony talked down to her and acted as if she was a "vapid, unintelligent female reporter".
A person familiar with the matter told BuzzFeed News that employees from the hotline tried contacting Golloher twice after she reached out but were unable to reach her.
