EEOC Files Sexual Harassment and Retaliation Lawsuit

     The EEOC recently filed a lawsuit alleging that a company subjected a female employee to a sexually hostile work environment and retaliated against her after she complained about the harassment and filed criminal charges against the persons she accused of harassment.  The Complaint claims that the employee, who worked as a server and cashier, was regularly subject to sexually offensive comments and sexual harassment by the restaurant manager and several kitchen workers by touching her in a sexual manner.  The harassment continued even after the plaintiff had complained to her supervisor.  The plaintiff had her hours reduced and eventually was removed from the work schedule altogether after she filed criminal charges against the manager and kitchen staff.  See EEOC v. Mayflower Seafood of Goldsboro, Inc., No. 5:15-CV-006360-BO (E.D.N.C. 2015).
