Five former employees of One Distribution Co. have brought a lawsuit in Orange County, California Superior Court against the company and also named Vice President of global Brands Matt Fontana for “alleged wrongful termination, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, retaliation and failure to take effective remedial action,” according to a story in the OC Weekly. The suit reportedly claims the following:
“Fontana subjected the female employees at One Distribution to greater scrutiny, stricter standards and treated them less favorably than similarly situated males,” reads the complaint. “Fontana compelled employees to ‘pose’ for sexually prurient prospective ads and to engage in work with inappropriate sexual content, advertising crude and questionable pornographic sexual material when the customer market for their work product is children (specifically boys) from the ages of 11 to 17 (primarily skating and skateboard apparel).
