SKMATCH Inc., a Subway franchisee with several stores in the Wilmington area, faces charges it failed to address sexual harassment complaints leveled at one of its assistant managers.
The EEOC has sued SKMATCH on behalf of former employee Helena Miller, who claimed she was subject to repeated sexual comments, propositions, name-calling and sexual touching. Miller, who was 18 years old at the time, says she complained to, but the company did nothing to stop the harassment.
When the situation became intolerable, Miller quit and complained to the EEOC.
Her suit seeks back pay, compensatory and punitive damages for Miller and all other female workers who suffered harassment from the assistant manager.
Advice: Employers that can’t show they made efforts to investigate harassment typically don’t fare well in court. Make sure you address all sexual harassment complaints quickly, fairly and professionally.
