Three former Dollar General em­­ployees will split $50,000 now that the retailer has agreed to settle an EEOC lawsuit that claimed it failed to adequately address sexual har­assment complaints against a male manager who worked at stores in Greensboro and Pleasant Garden.

The women alleged that the manager told offensive jokes, asked to have sex with them and touched their breasts and buttocks. The women say they complained to management, but the harassment continued. That’s when they complained to the EEOC.
