National massage franchise Massage Envy has recently been named one of the “Dirty Dozen” by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE). The list exposes those companies that are liable for, or have in some way contributed to, sexual exploitation. Established in 1962, NCOSE is a non-profit organization that seeks to expose links between all forms of sexual exploitation.
Allegations of Misconduct
In conjunction with Laffey, Bucci & Kent, LLP, Graves McLain has recently filed suit on behalf of an area resident who claims staff at a local Massage Envy sexually assaulted her. The suit alleges corporate management has polices regarding concealing misconduct in order to protect its own financial interests. Our research has revealed numerous claims of a similar nature made against Massage Envy locations nationwide, with some dating back as far as 2011.
A Widespread Culture of Abuse
As we reported in an earlier blog, an article published in 2017 detailed over 180 reports of sexual assault at Massage Envy locations nationwide. Graves McLain and Laffey, Bucci & Kent, LLP honor the strength and courage of those brave individuals who have come forward. Massage Envy has a solemn duty to protect the unsuspecting public against sexual abuse or exploitation, and has failed to do so.
