Melville-based Comprehensive Benefits Consultants will pay $150,000 to four former employees who alleged the company’s owner and his son subjected them to name-calling, sexual jokes, hugging and grabbing.
The settlement decree requires the company to provide anti-discrimination training to employees and set up complaint investigation procedures. The owner’s son, who is company president, also dropped defamation lawsuits against the plaintiffs.
