Fred Meyer Stores in Portland, Ore., owned by Cincinnati-based Kroger Co., agreed to pay $485,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by three women who worked in a store in Oregon City.

The women claimed that two store managers subjected them to graphic sexual discussions, unwanted touching and requests for sexual favors.

EEOC officials said a Kroger HR manager witnessed the harassment but failed to stop it. When the women complained, the managers retaliated against them, the EEOC claimed.
