On November 1st we reported that the EEOC’s targets include sexual harassment, and that it plans to continue filing systemic litigation. As if to put an exclamation point on this, the EEOC just sued Señor Frog's, a chain of Mexican-themed restaurants, as well as its staffing company, for “rampant sexual harassment of its female employees in Honolulu.”
The suit alleges that “widespread sexual harassment was out of control, stemming from Señor Frog's owner himself.”
“[A]t least nine female servers and bartenders were repeatedly bombarded with sexual propositions, explicit sexual remarks, groping, grabbing, and exposure of genital areas by male managers, and even ordered to perform sexual favors for high-level Señor Frog officials.”
The regional EEOC attorney stated that “We are troubled by the increase of sexual harassment cases and companies continuing to fail to take this problem seriously."
We told you that we would follow the EEOC’s filed suits to see if we detect an adherence to its espoused goals. So far they are one-for-one.
