Papas Grille in Durham is facing an EEOC lawsuit alleging it failed to address sexual harassment complaints from two women who worked in the kitchen.
Myrna Renea Lloyd and another female employee complained that two cooks repeatedly made unwanted sexual remarks and touched their buttocks, brushed up against them and wrapped their arms around them.
Lloyd claims she complained to the head chef and the restaurant’s owner, but that no one did anything to investigate and intervene.
The EEOC is suing Papas Grille’s parent company seeking back pay and compensatory and punitive damages.
Note: Small businesses are often slow to address sexual harassment. It’s seen as awkwardly disruptive in a small workplace. But a head-in-the-sand approach can take a toll, too, perpetuating morale-killing, unprofessional behavior.
