SETTLES EMPLOYEE'S SEX HARASSMENT AND RETALIATION CLAM FOR $52,500
In resolution of a sex discrimination and retaliation charge filed with the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Pilot Plastics agreed to pay a former employee $52,500 in damages.
Apparently, the employee was subjected to “inappropriate comments and touching,” and despite his complaints, the “sexual harassment and retaliation continued.”
In a written statement announcing the settlement, Dilip Gokhale, director of the EEOC’s Cleveland Field Office, noted that, “The EEOC is committed to enforcing the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requirement which mandates that employers must ensure the workplace is free of unlawful discrimination, including any harassment and retaliation.”
Was that a touching ending?
