Magazine Distributor Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit For $162,400
Prologix Distribution Services a magazine distributor, pays $162,400 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") on behalf of several female employees. According to published accounts the women worked as magazine order fillers and were subjected to sexual harassment by a longtime supervisor.
The sexual harassment included the making of sexually explicit remarks and inappropriate touching and groping of the women. This type of sexual harassment is the most common and I am glad to see the women take a stand and not let the company or the supervisor get away with it.
“No one should be subjected to this type of harassing conduct in the modern workplace,” said EEOC Attorney Robert Weisberg. “Employers must take appropriate steps to assure that this kind of abuse does not occur.”
