Kroger to Pay $42,500 to Settle Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

     The EEOC recently announced that Kroger has agreed to pay $42,500 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit.  The EEOC lawsuit alleged that Kroger subjected one of its teenaged employees to sexual harassment and that Kroger also failed to take action to stop a male coworker from abusing the employee.  The EEOC stated that the harassment started soon after the teenager was hired and continued throughout her employment with Kroger.  The EEOC also claimed that Kroger did not take corrective action until the employee’s final complaint.  See EEOC v. Kroger Co., No. 4:14-cv-00564-JLH (E.D. Ark.).
