Easton-based Lafayette College will pay five women $1 million to settle sexual harassment charges against a supervisor in the public safety division.
According to an EEOC complaint, the supervisor repeatedly made lewd gestures and remarks, e-mailed pornography, groped female employees and even forcibly kissed them. One employee quit when the harassment became intolerable.
Under the settlement agreement, the college will report any sexual harassment complaints directly to the EEOC for the next two years.
The college admitted no wrongdoing, but did agree to provide sexual harassment training to all its managers and supervisors.
