Tiger Woodss ex accuses him of sexual harassment while she was his employee

Tiger Woods's ex-girlfriend has accused him of sexually harassing her while his employee, alleging that the star golfer forced her to sign a non-disclosure agreement or be fired from her job.

According to a court document filed on Friday and reviewed by Sports Illustrated, Erica Herman dated Woods for more than five years. She was also an employee at his south Florida restaurant The Woods Jupiter before she alleges that she was forced to sign an NDA about the pair's sexual relationship under the threat of termination, which she argues amounted to sexual harassment.

"Mr Woods was Ms Herman's boss," her attorney, Benjamin Hobas, wrote in the court document. "On Mr Woods's own portrayal of events, he imposed an NDA on her as a condition to keep her job when she began having a sexual relationship with him.

"A boss imposing different work conditions on his employee because of their sexual relationship is sexual harassment."

Friday's filing comes as part of a legal dispute that erupted between Herman, 39, and Woods, 47, after they broke up last October.

Herman subsequently filed a lawsuit against the trust that Woods had set up for his Florida home in 2017, arguing that she had an oral agreement to remain at the place for about five more years but that the golfer had forced her out of their shared residence.

The lawsuit seeks $30m in damages.
