NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league would launch an internal investigation of the NFL Network in reaction to the claims made earlier this week as part of a wrongful termination lawsuit that alleged rampant sexual harassment at the NFL-owned broadcast outlet.

“We take that very seriously,” Goodell told reporters at the league’s winter meetings in Dallas on Wednesday, per NBC Sports. “Those are issues that are important to us, to make sure all of our employees, at the network, the league office, the clubs, are working in a safe and comfortable environment. Any time that doesn’t exist we’re going to make sure we deal with that very quickly and very seriously.”

The lawsuit against the NFL Network originally was filed by former network wardrobe stylist Jami Cantor in October, but the original complaint lacked the names of the individuals who allegedly created the hostile work environment.
