15 female ex-Redskins employees allege sexual harassment, bombshell report says

The Washington NFL franchise is under more scrutiny.

Fifteen female former employees who worked for the Redskins told The Washington Post that they were sexually harassed while working for the organization, the newspaper published in a bombshell report Thursday.

According to The Post, the team declined a request to release 15 of the former female employees from non-disclosure agreements so they could speak on the record.

This happens after Washington Redskins decided to change their name. Dan Snyder was adament of never changing the name.

Dan Snyder said he'd 'NEVER' change the Redskins name, but now that money is talking ...'ll%20never%20change%20the,a%20price%20tag%2C%20of%20course.

Prior to the bombshell report, the Washington franchise was in the process of retiring its "Redskins" nickname, and the focus shifted to working on a new team name.

Washington came under renewed fire over the term Redskins in recent weeks, with FedEx publicly requesting that the team change its name. The company reportedly threatened to remove signage from the stadium, as well, if the team didn’t make the alteration by the end of the 2020 season. And big-name retailers such as Amazon, Walmart and Target, as well as Nike and Dick’s Sporting Goods, all removed Redskins merchandise from their websites.

Interesting to note the bombshell corresponds with the name change.
