"Adding force to allegations made when Linuxcare 's CEO left that company in April, a former employee has charged that he was subject to sexual harassment and worse during his brief tenure there."
"Matthew Bowen, 28, is suing the San Francisco-based software company and its former CEO Fernand Sarrat in California Superior Court alleging, in one of six separate claims, that he was the subject of "quid pro quo" sexual harassment and sexual assault by Sarrat. The complaint also alleges that Linuxcare created a hostile environment in which sexual harassment could flourish, that the company retaliated against Bowen when he complained about Sarrat's alleged harassment and that it failed to prevent discrimination or harassment in its workplace."
"Bowen is seeking $2 million in damages."
