Following the two back to back lawsuits in August, CEO Mike Cagney wants to make sure SoFI is raising the bar for its policies, procedures, and programs to make sure it is not just bringing in great people, but creating a culture where all employees thrive.
A SoFi spokesperson responded to the amended complaint with harsh words meant to minimize Ottinger’s credibility. “These cases are brought by a lawyer who tells prospective clients on his YouTube channel that the facts and the law aren’t the most important factors in employment lawsuits. Apparently,” the statement continues, Ottinger “prefers to defame companies and individuals with lurid rumor and innuendo in the hope he will be paid to go away. That’s unethical and wrong. As we said when the case was filed, Mr. Charles’ claims were investigated in depth by the company and found to have no merit. We will vigorously defend ourselves against any claims otherwise.”
