The EEOC’s Chicago office has filed a class-action lawsuit against Source One Staffing, Inc., alleging the employment and temp agency assigns workers based on gender, explicitly defining some jobs as “men’s work” or “women’s work.”
The lawsuit also claims Source One Staffing knew about sexual harassment occurring at one job site and continued to send women to work there anyway. Two women claim that when they reported the harassment, Source One Staffing retaliated against them.
EEOC efforts to mediate the disputes failed, prompting the commission to sue.
Note: Staffing firms and temp agencies cannot ignore alleged harassment, even if it occurs at a client site. And if they retaliate against workers who complain about harassment, they become party to the harassment. As difficult as it may be to confront a client, facing the EEOC and government lawyers is harder.
