The EEOC has filed suit against California-based fruit smoothie retailer Jamba Juice, alleging the company allowed one of its managers to sexually harass several female employees.
The EEOC says the company disciplined the manager, but then promoted him two months later. The agency alleges that, once promoted, the unidentified manager continued to harass female employees. He allegedly commented on the size of their breasts and tried to engage them in sexually oriented discussions.
Final note: The EEOC is in the middle of a sexual harassment initiative aimed at protecting teen and young employees from harassment. It is focusing on fast-food restaurants because they usually employ young people, often offering them their first jobs.
