Several former employees of the Washington Football Team have rejected the NFL’s stance over not publicizing the findings of a year-long investigation into the WFT and its owner Daniel Snyder, according to ESPN.
Through their attorneys, the employees have conveyed that they want the NFL to release the written report on the findings of the probe. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said some of the people who were interviewed did not want the report released.
Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, the attorneys for some 40 women who have alleged they were sexually harassed during their time at the WFT, said their clients want the findings to be made public.
“While many who came forward feared retaliation by Dan Snyder, and therefore requested their names be kept confidential, they never envisioned that all their efforts and the efforts of Beth Wilkinson and her team would result in no written report of findings, and no real accountability for Dan Snyder or the WFT. Had they known this, they would not have participated.”
It is worth mentioning that Wilkinson and her team interviewed 150 people and later verbally presented their findings to the NFL. As a result of the probe, WFT were asked to pay $10 million in fines. Snyder, on the other hand, announced he would hand over the company’s day-to-day operations to his wife, Tanya.
