FILE PHOTO: New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announces the filing of a multistate lawsuit to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients at a press conference at John Jay College in New York City, U.S. on September 6, 2017.
The 38-page complaint features a litany of abuses at the company by co-founder and former co-CEO, who has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by dozens of women since last fall.
The lawsuit has also been brought against Mr Weinstein's brother Robert Weinstein.
The Weinstein Company and a spokeswoman for Harvey Weinstein were not immediately available for comment.
The lawsuit emerged amid reports the company was about to be sold to an investor group - with plans to set up a "largely female-led studio". "Every New Yorker has a right to a workplace free of sexual harassment, intimidation, and fear".
"As alleged in our complaint, The Weinstein Company repeatedly broke NY law by failing to protect its employees from pervasive sexual harassment, intimidation and discrimination", Schneiderman said in a statement provided to Fox News.
"According to a document reviewed by The Times, the attorney general's office has been seeking assurances that the company will establish a fund that will adequately compensate accusers". The attorney general's probe remains ongoing, he said in a news release.
Among the things Schneiderman's office reportedly uncovered is that Weinstein employed three groups of female employees to arrange, secure, coordinate, and perpetuate Weinstein's sexual conquests.
