A new report from Gizmodo on Wednesday found Zeel, an on-demand massage startup, repeatedly ignored therapists' complaints about sexual harassment and misconduct from its customers.
One Zeel therapist told Gizmodo that a client had offered her a $100 tip after requesting an abdomen and upper thigh massage.
Yet another said that she was sent to the hotel room of a male client on parole for sexual assault.
One Zeel massage therapist told Gizmodo that one customer made inappropriate comments about her appearance, and even masturbated in front of her during a session.
Zeel, an on-demand massage startup, is facing allegations of failing to protect its contractor workforce from abusive customers, Gizmodo reported on Wednesday.
The report suggests that Zeel repeatedly ignored its massage therapists' complaints about sexual harassment and misconduct from customers, with one such worker claiming that she was retaliated against after reporting inappropriate behavior from a client.
