EEOC Files Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

     The EEOC filed a lawsuit against three Ohio restaurants with the same owner.  The EEOC claims that the owner and chef of the restaurants subjected a female waitress to unwelcome, offensive, and repeated sexual comments and advances to the waitress that became so severe it eventually led to her being forced to resign her job.  The owner allegedly offered money in exchange for sex and sexually assaulted the waitress, and these actions reached a level that forced the waitress to resign from her job.  These alleged actions violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Title VII prohibits sexual harassment and sexual discrimination, including propositioning an employee for sex in exchange for money or promotions.  See EEOC v. 3501 Seoul, LLC, SushiNati, LLC, The Korea House, LLC, No.1:20-cv-00277-MWM (S.D. Ohio).
