It's the second lawsuit this month to be filed against the American Apparel chief executive, and it involves more allegations of sexual harassment—these from former sales associate Kimbra Lo.

In the interview, Ms. Lo claimed that Mr. Charney, wrapped in a towel, invited her to his bedroom to talk about a job. Once there, she said he undressed her and tried to have sex. Ms. Lo said she sought to resist but was afraid, and that he tried to take photographs.

Mr. Charney has said he often holds meetings in his bedroom.
