Caldbeck resigned from Binary on Sunday after a report by the Information detailing his sexual advances toward women looking to raise money.The imbroglio underscores the persistence of harassment and gender inequality in Silicon Valley, which came into wider light with Ellen Pao’s gender discrimination suit against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in 2012.Lai left Binary because of its “sexist and sexual environment,” including inappropriate conduct with female staff at company outings, a female-specific dress code and statements about the attractiveness of Lai and other women such as female startup founders, according to the lawsuit.Lai said she notified California’s Labor & Workforce Development Agency of Binary’s employment agreement, saying that it held illegal provisions that prevent employees from ever disclosing information about their working conditions.The prohibitions in turn “allows employers to abuse their power and mistreat their workforce” and “leverage their positions of power for sexual gain and for other inappropriate reasons,” according to the complaint.Lai, who said Binary’s actions caused economic and emotional harm, is seeking civil penalties, attorneys’ fees and costs, economic and general damages, according to the lawsuit.
