Fast Food Restaurant Owner Settles Sexual Harassment Law Suit


Terre Haut-Sidal Inc., the owner of several fast food restaurants, will pay $150,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit brought by the EEOC. In addition to monetary damages, Sidal was required to enter into a five-year consent decree according to which Sidal is to train his employees on sexual harassment avoidance and to monitor its facilities to make sure that harassing behavior does not occur.

The EEOC charged that at least one former manager at a Terre Haut fast food restaurant violated federal laws by subjecting teenage female employees to unwelcome sexual comments, sexual advances, sexual grouping and sexual assault.
