What’s the Problem?
November 30, 2017 – Lawsuits have been filed against at least 4 different Illinois Massage Envy franchises, according to the Chicago Tribune. Those locations include the Massage Envy in Chicago, Naperville, Elmhurst, and Tinley Park, the Times said.
A Chicago woman filed suit against the Tinley Park Massage Envy over an August 2016 incident in which she claims her masseur groped her “breasts and vaginal area under the guise of providing her with massage therapy.”
After the session, the woman claims the man met her outside the room and asked her if she was uncomfortable or felt violated, in so doing “made several admissions to suggest that he knew his behavior was not welcome,” the complaint states.
Claims against Massage Envy by nearly 200 women were brought to light as part of a BuzzFeed News investigation published Sunday. All of the complaints include similar allegations that the company’s massage therapists sexually assaulted patrons at their franchises across the U.S.
Many of the lawsuits contain additional allegations that Massage Envy mishandled or ignored their complaints, according to the Times.
