The EEOC is suing a Pennsylvania steel plant for condoning sexual harassment by allowing offensive pictures, posters and calendars in the office. The lawsuit claims a shipping clerk and other female employees had to view offensive material for at least two years. According to the suit, a company representative failed to respond to female workers' complaints because he feared a backlash from male employees who "would get mad at him" if he removed the pictures. The lesson: Doing what's legally correct versus what's popular among staff are often two very different things. (EEOC v. Akers National Roll Co.)
