New York City – Our NYC sexual harassment lawyers have just learned of a major lawsuit filed against a Wall Street financier. Swedish-born Hanna Bouveng is seeking $75 million in damages due to allegations of rampant and serious sexual harassment on the job.
24-year-old Bouveng worked for Benjamin Wey at New York Global Communications as a director of corporate communications. In her suit, she claims that Wey was a “virulent sexual harasser and stalker.” He bought her “tight skirts” and “low-cut shirts” to wear around the office. She alleges he made lewd sexual remarks and repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances.
She claims she was fired after she rejected his come-ons.
Bouveng also alleges she felt “trapped” into having sex with Wey in December 2013 after he got her drunk.
