"And then you wonder why there aren't more women working in sports".
How could a hands-on National Basketball Association owner like Cuban be unaware of such allegations?
"It's wrong. It's abhorrent. It's not a situation we condone", Cuban told SI. "Do we have any issues I have to be aware of?' And the answer was no". The employee was in charge of receiving and investigating "such complaints and report them accurately and fully".
Several women described a workplace culture that was rampant with abuse and that higher-ups, inside the Mavericks organization, were not only aware but threatened to fire employees who didn't "shut up" and do their jobs, according to SI. The Mavericks did not reveal if the employee left on his own terms or if he was sacked.
