Miami’s Piloto Photo Center faces sexual harassment charges after female employees alleged the owner subjected them to graphic sexual comments and demeaning name-calling. Two former employees, including one manager, claim they were fired for opposing the harassment.
The EEOC sued on the employees’ behalf after failing to settle the matter through its conciliation process. Store owner Carlos Piloto denies all the charges against him. Unless the parties settle, the case is headed for trial.
Note: Small businesses may be particularly vulnerable to sexual harassment suits. Jurors often doubt that business owners can be trusted to police their own behavior. Similarly, small business employees can’t report alleged harassment to anyone but the owner. All the more reason for small businesses to adopt—and follow—a robust anti-harassment policy.
