Ex-employee Leah Rothman, who was a segment producer, says she was forced to quit due to a "hostile work environment" in April 2015. According to People, Rothman was called into work on a day off and herded into a room with about 300 other Dr. Phil employees, at which point McGraw entered the room, ordered security to lock the doors, and made all the employees hand over their phones.
