EEOC Settles Sexual Harassment Claim Against Restaurant

     The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently settled a sexual harassment lawsuit against a Korean restaurant chain.  The EEOC had filed a lawsuit against the restaurant claiming that the owner and chef subjected one of his female employees to sexual harassment and that he had offered her money in exchange for sex.  The EEOC further alleged that the harassment eventually rose to sexual assault and forced the employee to resign.  This alleged conduct is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sexual harassment.  See EEOC v. 3501 Seoul, LLC, No. 1:20-cv-00277 (S.D. Ohio).
