Steven Seagal sued by former employee for sexual harassment

Kayden Nguyen, a 23-year-old former model, has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against actor Steven Seagal, who hired Nguyen as an “Executive Assistant.”  According to the court documents, which were filed on April 12, 2010, Nguyen “was told that the job involved standard clerical functions as the Executive Assistant for Steven Seagal and his production company.” 

On her first work-related trip with Seagal to New Orleans, Nguyen claims that “she learned that the job she was expected to perform had nothing to do with being an ‘Executive Assistant.’  Ms. Nguyen learned that Mr. Seagal had been keeping two young female Russian ‘Attendants’ on staff who were available for his sexual needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

Nguyen alleges that, during the first night in New Orleans, Seagal “proceeded to treat Ms. Nguyen as his sex toy.”  Seagal allegedly asked Nguyen for a “massage” and then proceeded to grope her bare breasts and stick his hand down her pants. 

The charges that were filed against Steven Seagal and his production company, Steamroller Productions, include sexual harassment, illegal trafficking of females for sex, retaliation, wrongful termination, and false representations about employment.

    I used to work at a fast food chain years ago. The company policy was clear: no adult language at work as customers can hear it. This apparently did not include talk about sex. That was allowed. But to be totally honest about the actor mentioned above, I have to say one thing. The movie industry should not employ workers unless they are honest about the job description and duties expected. Sexual harassment is still against the law today. I agree with the former employee. File charges.
