Former Boston Firefighter Agreed to a $3.2M Settlement After Being Sexual Harassed While on the Job

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A former Boston firefighter has reached a $3.2 million settlement with the city after being sexually harassed while on the job by a male colleague.

The former firefighter, Nathalie Fontanez, went public in 2018 with complaints of unfair treatment in the firehouse after working there for around seven years; saying it was a work environment where women are discriminated against and, in at least one case, harassed and sexually assaulted.

The male colleague was convicted of criminal charges at the beginning of last year, and Fontanez’s agreement was finalized last month.
