Man sues California prisons for sex bias, harassment

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is suing the California Depart­­ment of Corrections and Reha­­bili­­ta­­tion (CDCR) on behalf of an employee who alleges he suffered sex discrimination and harassment.

The lawsuit alleges that for more than a year, a female co-worker sexu­­ally harassed the man, making frequent unwanted sexual advances, inappropriately touching him and using profane language. The man also claims the woman hit him in the head.

Despite his internal complaints, the man says the CDCR failed to take steps to end the harassment or discipline the harasser.

He took his complaint to the Cali­­for­­nia Department of Fair Employ­­ment and Housing, which referred it to the EEOC for investigation. When the EEOC found credible evidence of harassment and sex discrimination, it referred the matter to the Depart­­ment of Justice for further action.
