On the heels of more than two dozen women making further accusations of sexual harassment against Charlie Rose, one current and two former CBS News employees sued the anchor and his former network Friday. The plaintiffs are Katherine Brooks Harris, Sydney McNeal, and Yuqing ("Chelsea") Wei, each of whom alleges that Rose harassed them in 2017.

Harris and McNeal say Rose would tell the women they should become lovers. with each other, not him.

Rose was ousted from CBS previous year after allegations of harassment emerged.

Rose was sacked in November from his job as co-host of "CBS This Morning" after the Washington Post reported that eight women alleged he had sexually harassed them.

He asked Harris and McNeal to describe their sex lives and boasted of his own conquests, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit also accuses CBS executives of failing to warn employees of Rose's history of sexual misconduct. He is also supposed to have made sexual remarks on various occasions.

CBS News has selected Dickerson as Charlie Rose's replacement on the "CBS This Morning" program, pairing him with current anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.

Since Rose was sacked, CBS News said it has taken steps to ensure a safer workplace, including mandatory misconduct training.

But, according to the complaint, the defendants "unlawfully failed and refused to take any remedial action and allowed Mr". All of the women say he would repeatedly caress and touch their bodies, including their arms, shoulders, waists and backs.

Rose later allegedly told Harris he hired her because he liked "tall women", kissed her on the cheek, placed his hands on her thighs, and demanded she come to his apartment late at night.

The allegations include details of comments Rose made about their intelligence and their ethnicity. Rose referred to Ms. Wei as "China Doll".

Harris claims she was wined and dined by Rose while working as a broadcast associate for one of the CBS morning shows, discussing potential job opportunities for Harris at "60 Minutes" or on Rose's eponymous show. Wei filed an HR complaint, and was subsequently moved to a different assignment.

For many years, Rose did his PBS interview show at the same time he worked for CBS, and the Post story also examined his behavior there. Her complaint included allegations against Kadro, whom she said kicked her chair as a show of intimidation.

CBS News said it could not confirm or corroborate numerous stories told by The Post. The lawsuit says that Wei's health suffered as a result of her experience with CBS.

The Post has since reported that a total 35 women have come forward with allegations against Rose, whom one former intern reportedly said "falls toward the worst end of the spectrum" of sexual harassment.

"CBS was fully aware of".
