How a manager should not behave

Question: What do you think will happen if a manager suggests that a female sub­­­­ordinate put on a bathing suit to attract new customers?

Answer: A lawsuit.

That’s just one of the accusations the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) made in a recent class lawsuit filed against SunTrust Banks, Inc. The suit said a Sarasota, Fla., branch manager also inappropriately touched fe­­male employees and made lewd comments to them about their anatomy, sex life and dating habits. 

Several women complained to Sun­­Trust management, including Sun­­Trust’s human resources department. The company failed to take appropriate action to properly remedy the situation.
