If you think you have a bad boss, wait until you hear this woman's workplace complaint. An employee in a doctor's office accused her boss of trading Botox for sexual favors from female patients. And that's not even the worst of it.
AnnMarie Miglorino, a nutritionist, claims that in addition to his sex-for-services deal, Dr. George Shapiro would also show her photos of patients' private parts that were in the camera roll of his cellphone. When she told him she didn't want to look at the photos because they made her uncomfortable, she says he just laughed and made a joke out of it. Needless to say, Miglorino didn't think it was the least bit funny.
It gets worse. He even showed her a video of a woman ejaculating "and asked me if I could do that," she said in a complaint filed to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which is the first step in filing a federal sexual harassment suit. He also reportedly showed her text messages from women he claimed to have had sex with and made repeated comments about Miglorino's body.
You would think he would try to hide his less than ethical behavior, but according to Miglorino, he boasted about it. Like some silly frat boy, he thought it was cool that he was able to score sexual favors from female patients at his Manhattan office. He apparently commonly referred to the tit for tat as "Botox for b**w j**s." Not exactly the most comfortable work environment. It's not surprising that she quit.
It's so odd that in this day and age, people still think they can get away with such egregious sexual harassment. If these allegations are true, it's incredibly disturbing. And it's not just Miglorino who is suffering. He is also allegedly abusing the trust of all those women he treats.
If these claims are true, what should happen to this doctor?
