american apparel ceo fired for making employee his sex slave

This man had many, many reasons to be ousted out of his company, but this was apparently the action that gave him the final boot from his job!

Suspended American Apparel CEO Dov Charney was finally fired by the American Apparel board specifically because of a 2011 case when a former employee named Irene Morales accused Charney of forcing her into "sex slavery"!!

Not only that but Charney also made one of his employees post nude photos of Morales onto a blog without either her knowledge or consent — a move that was illegal in SO many ways!

Here's what a source said:

"The board's concern…is that the blog not only harassed and defamed Morales, but also ran afoul of certain California laws that forbid falsely impersonating others online, as alleged in a suit at the time by Morales's lawyer Eric Baum."

The board was mortified by Charney's actions not because of any moral matters, but because the move "exposed the company to liability".

Morales wanted $260 million according to her lawsuit, but that case was thrown out by a Brooklyn judge in 2012. Part of the reason for that may have been the report that Morales had sent a lot of nude photos to Charney after she had ceased to work for the company.

The case however did go into arbitration where Morales is expected to receive a settlement "in the low six-digits” which is well short of what she originally wanted, but at least she'll get something for the trauma she received at the hands of Dov Charney.

Still, this begs the question, since that case was a couple years ago, what the reasons were why the company only acted now to deliver their punishment to Dov Charney. Why wouldn't they have done this when the case was first brought to light?

We have a feeling there were some other recent factors that were involved, but that's just our opinion!

    So why didn't she just quit? The economy is in pretty good shape right now, unlike when I lost my job in early 2010, IRA is gaining, etc. Article does not state what her job was, but if she has good skills she should be able to land another job.
