NFL Takes Over Investigation of Washington Football Team
The NFL has taken over the independent investigation into workplace conduct within the Washington Football Team. Owner Dan Snyder said he and his wife, Tanya, suggested to Commissioner Roger Goodell the NFL assume full oversight of the review. The Washington Post reported last month about 15 female former employees saying they were sexually harassed during their time with the team. Snyder then hired law firm Wilkinson Walsh LLP to review the team’s culture, policies and allegations of workplace misconduct. Attorney Beth Wilkinson now reports directly to the league office. Lawyers for more than 15 former team employees had asked the NFL to launch its own investigation.
