Lawsuit Claims BlackBerry CEO Sexually Harassed a Senior Employee

A former BlackBerry Ltd. employee has filed a lawsuit against the company and its new chief executive John Giamatteo, who she claims sexually harassed her and then retaliated against her after she reported the behaviour.

The complainant, a California-based woman of colour who worked for the Waterloo, Ont.-based tech company for more than a decade, including in several senior roles, alleges members of the firm’s leadership ranks were aware of her complaints when Giamatteo was named chief executive in December.

The lawsuit was filed in a U.S. district court on Wednesday hours before the tech firm was due to report its fourth-quarter results.
