Male On Male Sexual Harassment Cases
Roy Farms allowed a supervisor to sexually harass male laborers and as a result is the defendant in a sexual harassment lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"). According to published accounts a male general manager constantly barraged male workers with inappropriate comments that were both sexual and threatening. This stuff goes on all the time and most people just don't realize it.
The general manager touched them in a sexual manner and asked them to look at him while he urinated in public. Talk about a real creepy guy. Martin Barrera finally had enough and told the general manager to stop. When he would nots top he reported the matter to a former supervisor as well as the owner of the farm. When nothing was done to stop the harassment he quit--which is called a constructive discharge.
"I have worked in the farm industry for many years, and I had never before faced such extreme abuse," said Barrera. "I want this lawsuit to ensure that other farm workers don't have to experience the same mistreatment."
