Gretchen Carlson settlement already?

I often meet with employees who believe they are getting harassed at work. They want to know their options, and how the process ordinarily plays out. Let me tell you what I usually do not tell them:
Let's skip the agency charge process, and just file a lawsuit. In a few weeks, your employer will fire your harasser (who happens to be Chairman), issue you a public apology, and throw $20 million at you.
That never happens, right? Except, that's exactly what happened in the reported Gretchen Carlson-FoxNews settlement.
