New York, NY- A former employee of a New York doctor is accusing her boss of rampant sexual harassment and trading cosmetic treatments, namely Botox, for sexual encounters with patients and employees.

AnnMarie Miglorino,who worked as a nutritionist for Dr. George Shapiro, 53, filed a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit against her boss and his practice this week in a Manhattan court. And the suit contains a number of lurid allegations.

Miglorino alleges that her married boss repeatedly solicited her for sex, and touched her inappropriately. The suit says Dr. Shapiro “tried to kiss me on the mouth several times, and hugged me inappropriately a few times in a sexual manner, pushing his hips into me,” according to the New York Daily News.

The harassment didn’t stop there, and on a number of occasions, the married father of five tried to show her nude pictures of patients which he presumably took for his medical journal. She refused to look at the photographs and made it known they made her feel uncomfortable.

The doctor, who specialize in age management, would make comments about her body and remarked who good her butt looked in the yoga pants she was required to wear to work.

Miglorino said in her suit she went to the office manager and complained about Shaprio’s behavior, but nothing was done to stop his inappropriate behavior. The officer manger would accompany Miglorino when she had to interact with Shapiro. The office manager eventually quit and Shapiro became more aggressive with his harassment.

The most severe incident occurred one day when Shaprio approached Miglorino and said he wanted to put her on the window sill” and perform oral sex on her, according to the Daily News.

She went to the new office manager and told them about the encounter. Shaprio found out and tensions in the office grew. Eventually she was fired for no apparent reason.

Miglorino’s suit is seeking compensation for her loss of wages and emotional distress.

Miglorino’s case is all too familiar; a person in a powerful position exploits their employees for their own pleasure and could care less how it makes them feel. Too many men, and occasionally women, use their position and prestige to satisfy their sexual desire and need to exert power. Those who are prone to sexually harassment don’t believe the rules apply to them. They believe they can get away with and some go so far as to threaten their employees to assure they get away.

When an employee speaks out or takes action, their harasser punishes them, and rarely changes the inappropriate behavior unless forced to. Retaliation and sexual harassment typically go hand in hand and creates many problems for the victim.

A sexual harassment attorney will make certain an employer doesn’t get away the way they treated their client. An attorney will put an end to the sexual harassment and make certain the guilty party or parties are held accountable for their actions, and fairly compensate the victim for the suffering they have endured.
