The EEOC filed a lawsuit against Turkey Hill Dairy, Inc. alleging the company maintained a hostile work environment in its Conestoga Dairy facility in Lancaster County.
The suit alleges that a field utility worker was sexually harassed by his male co-workers for more than a year. The employee contends that fellow workers called him derogatory names, whistled at him and blew kisses at him. After making several complaints to his supervisor, the employee was fired.
Turkey Hill denies the allegations, contending the employee was fired for his own inappropriate conduct.
