Sexual Harassment Suit Commenced by the EEOC

A major veterinary center is being sued for sexual harassment and retaliation by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of six female employees for actions of one of its co-owners.

At least six female employees were subjected to vulgar and offensive comments. The co-owner often called them "worthless" and "whores."

The co-owner also fired at least three of the victims and forced others to quit after they made their complaints, which could be retaliatory. The EEOC is seeking compensatory, punitive, and injunctive relief against the company.
