Black workers at M. Slavin & Sons Fish processing plant in Brooklyn allege bosses there continually sexually harass black workers by grabbing their buttocks, pressing against them and occasionally jabbing their backsides with fishhooks.
The workers have filed a complaint with the EEOC, alleging that racial and sexual harassment from white bosses often includes racial jokes and slurs.
An article in the New York Daily News said several Slavin employees corroborated the claims, including one who said he settled a similar complaint with the company for $10,000.
A spokesman for Slavin said it’s all a fish story, and vowed that the company will fight the complaint. Barring conciliation by the EEOC, the case will move to federal court.
