The Ruby Tuesday casual dining chain has agreed to pay $255,000 to a group of teenage girls who worked at its East Stroudsburg restaurant after the EEOC filed a lawsuit accusing a manager there of sexual harassment.
As part of the settlement, the restaurant must conduct annual sexual harassment training and distribute its sexual harassment policy and notice of the settlement to all employees.
Note: The EEOC is placing a high priority on looking into sexual harassment complaints made by teenage employees. That means businesses that employ lots of teens—restaurants, for example—should make sexual harassment training a priority, too. It’s better to prevent problems than try to explain to the EEOC why you didn’t.
