Lincoln, NE-based Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society will pay $285,000 plus a $50,000 annuity to Louella Rollins, a Pittsburgh-area woman who served as state manager for Woodmen in Pennsylvania.
Rollins claimed that a man she supervised complained openly about having to work for a woman. She said the employee also grabbed and touched her. When she complained, she said she was told to manage her office better. When she complained again, she was demoted.
The settlement also requires Woodmen to report future sexual harassment complaints to the EEOC.
