The EEOC has sued Worthington-based Davis Typewriter after a manager streamed video from a company surveillance tape on his computer—allegedly so he could ogle a female subordinate’s breasts.
When the woman learned of the incident, she complained to. In its complaint, the EEOC alleges that Davis Typewriter took no action to stop the behavior or discipline the manager. Ultimately, the woman claims, she was forced to quit her job.
When the EEOC’s conciliation efforts failed, it sued. The lawsuit seeks injunctive relief, as well as back pay, compensatory and punitive damages for the former employee. In addition, the EEOC wants the court to order Davis Typewriter to adopt an effective sexual harassment prevention policy that complies with federal law.
Note: Promptly conduct a good-faith investigation of all sexual harassment complaints. If a complaint escalates into a lawsuit, no investigation means no defense as far as a court is concerned.
