Though Fox was already under fire at the time for its handling of complaints against Roger Ailes, the network rewarded O'Reilly with a new contract-and a significant raise-just a month after he settled with Wiehl.
The Timesreports that the newly disclosed case centered around O'Reilly and Lis Wiehl, a former Fox legal analyst who occasionally appeared on his television and radio shows.
In January, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly agreed to pay an astonishing $32 million to settle sexual harassment allegations from a Fox New analyst.
"His new contract, which was made at a time typical for renewals of multi-year talent contracts, added protections for the company specifically aimed at harassment, including that Mr. O'Reilly could be dismissed if the company was made aware of other allegations or if additional relevant information was obtained in a company investigation", the company said.
Her draft lawsuit nixed by the agreement included "allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material", according to the report.
The amount that O'Reilly settled for - $32 million - and the fact that Fox still re-upped O'Reilly's after the fact, despite not knowing the details of the settlement at the time, is what made the story so big.
And: "Finally, in the more than 20 years Bill O'Reilly worked at Fox News, not one complaint was filed against him with the Human Resources Department or Legal Department by a coworker, even on the anonymous hotline. The company subsequently acted based on the terms of this contract".
Given the attention that Fox News hosts have paid to the Weinstein story, it will be interesting to see whether O'Reilly's massive settlement receives much, or any, coverage from the network's primetime opinionators and moralists.
She said the numerous women who have come forward against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was a sign women are standing up against harassment. It said it also increased "the channels through which employees can report harassment or discrimination". "These changes come from the top, with Lachlan and James Murdoch personally leading the effort to promote civility and respect on the job, while maintaining the Company's long-held commitment to a diverse, inclusive and creative workplace".
