EEOC Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently settled a sexual harassment lawsuit against Nature’s Medicines. The EEOC’s lawsuit alleged that one of the General Managers subjected multiple employees to a hostile work environment. The lawsuit further claimed that the harassment involved unwelcome touching and offensive sexual comments to the staff and offensive sexual comments to and about customers. On at least one occasion, the GM showed an employee a nude picture on his phone. Multiple employees complained about this behavior. This alleged conduct is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination and sexual harassment. See EEOC v. AMMA Investment Group, LLC, No. 1:20-cv-02786 (D. Md.).
