Former employee suing NFL Films for sexual harassment

A former employee at NFL Films has filed a civil lawsuit against the league-owned company, alleging multiple incidents of sexual harassment, according to NJ.com.

Nadia Axakowsky, a voice-over actor, claims she was “discriminated against, sexually harassed, retaliated against by her employer solely due to her sex and for complaining of the ongoing harassment” and that former supervisors made unwanted advances. She alleges one in particular, Glenn Adamo, groped her more than once.

She said she complained to her employers about the harassment and believes the company did not properly investigate the issue.

Axakowsky was fired by NFL Films in September 2016.
