As a result of the statements made by O'Reilly and the Fox News, Bernstein stated that she suffered reputational harm, emotional distress, physical sickness and loss of income, states the suit. Bernstein reached a settlement with Fox in 2002 after those repeated complaints. He mistreated Ms. Bernstein.

Fox News severed its relationship with O'Reilly in April amid mounting harassment claims.

Bernstein alleges in her suit that she complained repeatedly about O'Reilly's mistreatment of her to the company's human resources department and top Fox News executives, but nothing was done.

The woman, Rachel Witlieb Bernstein, is one of six known to have reached settlements after making accusations against Mr. O'Reilly.

When the New York Times published its story about O'Reilly, the cable news network's parent company responded, "Notwithstanding the fact that no current or former Fox News employee ever took advantage of the 21st Century Fox hotline to raise a concern about Bill O'Reilly, even anonymously, we have looked into these matters over the last few months and discussed them with Mr. O'Reilly".

Bernstein did not allege she was a victim of sexual harassment in the lawsuit. None of the others have said anything publicly about their claims. O'Reilly screamed at Bernstein in front of other employees, according to the New York Times.

Her lawsuit also claims that O'Reilly's statements that no complaints were filed against him are "deliberately misleading".

O'Reilly would make other comments including to The Hollywood Reporter, which is cited in today's lawsuit.

O'Reilly was sacked on April 19 from Fox News after a 20-year run at the cable network. The story said Bernstein left Fox "with a payout and bound by a confidentiality agreement", and that her settlement "was far less" than the others. The lawsuit claims, "This is false".

Bernstein said there was no hot line in existence at the time of her employment. She is now a producer for Conan, and is being represented by Smith Mullin, the same law firm that hired by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson in her own legal battle against the network.

Reps for Fox News and Bill O'Reilly were not immediately available for comment.
