Charlotte Newman Wiki – Charlotte Newman Biography

Charlotte Newman, a senior manager for the Amazon Web Services division, filed the lawsuit Monday in district court in Washington, D.C. Her lawsuit also alleges that a former Amazon executive se**xually harassed and assaulted her.

Newman, who is black, claims that the discrimination started shortly after she was hired at Amazon in January 2017 for a public policy manager position in Washington, which was one level lower than the job she initially applied for despite being more than qualified, your attorney. Douglas Wigdor told USA TODAY on Monday.

Wigdor said Newman took the “Level 6” job at Amazon because she was told that her responsibilities would only force her to do US-related domestic politics work. However, within a few months, Newman was doing “Tier 7” international work outside of the US, which included Canada and Latin America.

“She should have been compensated at Level 7,” Wigdor said of his client. “The underpayment is definitely in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not in the seven figures.”

“Amazon works hard to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture, and these allegations do not reflect those efforts or our values,” the Amazon spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “We do not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind and we thoroughly investigate all allegations and take appropriate action. We are currently investigating the new allegations included in this lawsuit.”

Harassment claims

Newman also accuses former AWS Director AndrĂ©s Maz of sexual harassment and assault for touching his “upper thigh” under a table during a work dinner and pulling his braided hair when he tried to leave a bar during another work-related event.

The lawsuit also accuses AWS Director Steve Block, her first boss, of discrimination, including that she was “too direct” and “aggressive” in her communication style. The lawsuit says Maz was fired after Amazon conducted an internal investigation and required Block to receive training. Maz could not immediately be reached for comment.

Newman decided to talk about his experiences after he started working from home due to the pandemic and the fatal police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor that led to a global racial reckoning, Wigdor said.

When asked why Newman was not accepting a financial agreement or was simply looking for a new job, Wigdor said that he has refused to settle with Amazon because it would likely include a confidentiality clause that would prohibit talking about his experience.

Wigdor, a prominent entertainment attorney who has represented six of the women who accused embattled Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse, said Newman is concerned about some “retaliation for showing up.”

The attorney added that Newman has no intention of leaving Amazon because he wants the company to make major changes with its recruitment and diversity initiatives.

“Ms. Newman wants to change from within and that is why she is still there,” Wigdor told USA TODAY. “She is going to try to make a difference, so she wants this to be publicly known. She hopes that Amazon will make the necessary changes as one of the largest companies in the world.”
