Long Island car dealership Thomas Subaru settled with the EEOC after three women complained about a pervasive hostile work environment. All three had been terminated after complaining of unwanted touching, sexually explicit and degrading comments and pornography in the workplace.
The dealership first ignored the women’s complaints and then terminated them when they didn’t stop complaining. In effect, the EEOC said, the employees had no real recourse to counter the sexual harassment.
Under the consent decree, the employer will pay the former employees $132,250, train supervisors about handling sexual harassment complaints, develop and post a sexual harassment policy and publicize the settlement to all employees.
