A female employee was the victim of severe sexual harassment at work by her supervisor. The supervisor was obsessed with pornography, and felt she resembled a well-known adult firm star. He relentlessly pursued her, made crude comments about her body and his sex life, stalked her, touched her inappropriately, drunkenly threatened her, and made her work-life unbearable. As a married woman, our client was horrified by the conduct, and repeatedly complained to top management about him. Although the company claimed to investigate her complaints, they took no action to protect her. The "good old boys' network closed ranks behind the supervisor to protect him. When our client could take no more, she was forced to quit. We brought suit against the supervisor, the company and it's CEO. The case settled prior to trial.
Result: Substantial confidential settlement.
