Employers Can’t Reduce the Working Hours Of Employees Who Don’t Want to be Groped at Work

     The EEOC recently reported that an IHOP franchise agreed to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit.  The EEOC’s lawsuit alleged that the franchise’s owner has sexually harassed female employees by groping them, stalking them and making inappropriate sexual comments to them.  Female employees who rejected the inappropriate sexual advances allegedly had negative changes made to their schedules.  The alleged conduct is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  See EEOC v. Swami Pancake, LLC, No. 0:19-cv-60714-UU (S.D. Fla.).
