New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit Sunday against The Weinstein Co., Harvey Weinstein and Robert Weinstein over alleged violations of civil rights, human rights and business laws. Schneiderman's office said any sale must ensure that victims are compensated.

He has since been accused of rape by three women, sexual assault, and harassment. He denies having non-consensual sex.

"To work for Harvey Weinstein was to work under a persistent barrage of gender-based obscenities, vulgar name-calling, sexualized interactions, threats of violence, and a workplace generally hostile to women", the suit claims.

The lawsuit includes "new and extensive violations" about Harvey Weinstein's "vicious and exploitative mistreatment" of company employees, according to a news statement.

The suit says that the investigation shows that the head of human resources at Weinstein's company was not empowered to do anything about his ongoing sexual harassment of female employees.

It accuses the company's board and executives of repeatedly failing to take adequate steps to protect staff or curb Weinstein's behavior, despite multiple complaints.

A third group were were forced to facilitate Weinstein's sexual conquests, and to follow through on HW's promise of employment opportunities to women who met with Weinstein's favor.

One employee told the company HR department that "only female executives are put in these positions with actresses with whom Weinstein has a 'personal friendship, ' which to my understanding means he has either had or wants to have sexual relations with them".

A representative for Weinstein could not be immediately reached for comment Sunday.
