Construction Company to Pay $125,000 to Settle Sexual Harassment Suit

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has reported that a major construction company has settled a sexual harassment lawsuit for $125,000

According to the EEOC's claims, female employees were subjected "to a sexually hostile work environment which included telling stories of sexual exploits, derogatory remarks about females, inappropriate sexual comments and engaging in unwelcome touching of a sexual nature."

Besides the monetary relief, the company has agreed to revise its sexual harassment policy and to provide training to its employees and staff.

EEOC Regional Attorney Robert Weisberg stated that, "Employers have an obligation under federal law to provide all of their employees with a workplace free from such misconduct."
