Sexual harassment suit filed against fitness center

Nearly everyone would agree that a workplace should be a comfortable place to work, not an environment ripe with derogatory and discriminating commentary. Unfortunately, sexual harassment in the workplace does take place all too frequently, often leading to employees feeling intensely uncomfortable while they are simply trying to perform their job. That may have been the case for one California man, who has filed a lawsuit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court alleging that he was the victim of sexual harassment.

EEOC: Sexual harassment in the workplace improperly handled

A lawsuit currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California alleges that a multibillion-dollar property management company erred in the way they handled the sexual harassment claim of an employee at their Squaw Valley resort. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed the suit accusing the employer of failure to take prompt corrective action when the employee, a server and bartender, reported unwanted touching and sexual advances from 2005 through 2007.

Sexual harassment in the workplace leads to $230,000 court award

When you bring claims of sexual harassment in the workplace to your employer, at the very least you expect the claims to be taken under serious consideration.

The California based insurance company instead fired them in retaliation for complaining about harassment by a supervisor.
