I Worked under a Serial Sexual Harasser.

Its not about sexual harassment. Its about finances.

Ive been following the news about Bill OReilly and his recent firing intently. The story of a serial harasser who leveraged his workplace power over the people around him is familiar to me.

.

So is the one where the culture of the company allows him to weather the storm around the multiple public lawsuits he was forced to settle, only to be fired when the financial pressure becomes too much to bear. Only in my situation, the accused was proud of what he did. Thats because I worked at American Apparel under its founder and CEO, Dov Charney.

.

Charneys sexual transgressions have been widely documented at this point. Weve all heard the stories of him sending explicit texts and emails to multiple employees, or about the trove of graphic videos and photos of Charney having sex with employees and models saved on a company computer. I can only confirm that these kinds of stories were traded by employees for a long time at the company.

.

But Charney cultivated this environment early on. Workers were vaguely told upfront to expect an unconventional work culture  which largely translated to sexual in nature. In order to get hired, employees had to send headshots and full-body photos of ourselves to management. It was widely known that Charney had sexual relationships with plenty of women at the company.

.

In light of the recent news of the Canadian clothing company Gildan buying American Apparel and its decision to shutter every retail location, I sat down and thought about everything I went through. For most of it I was in my early 20s, new to New York, and working enough overtime to enjoy a pretty good life. I came away from my 18 months at American Apparel with plenty of stories, which I still tell today.

.

When I talk about them, my friends remember what the store and company represented. How brazen it was about almost everything. Weve spent nights Googling the most disgusting and offensive ads American Apparel ever put out. We talk about how the company was hit with harassment case after harassment case, but none of it mattered until Charney started to become a problem for the companys bottom line.

.

There are big differences between the American Apparel harassment accusations and what happened at Fox News with OReilly. For one, even though Charney was a fairly high-profile executive, he had nowhere near the fame and popularity OReilly enjoyed as a host on a national news network. Charney was also the CEO and completely in charge of the company until he was terminated in 2014.

.

Still, there are important similarities  both men were high-powered figures with multiple harassment cases against them, and both men were not punished for it until they became financial liabilities. Both Fox and American Apparel had cultures of sexual harassment cultivated by powerful men at the top of the food chain. These cultures were widely reported and discussed as an open secret, yet the men at the center of the charges were protected.

.

When I look back at my time at American Apparel, I begin to understand how it was possible that this kind of behavior persisted  it was created by the men at the top.
