Lexus Dealership Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

San Francisco is often perceived as being one of the most progressive cities in the United States. But in one San Francisco suburb, at a Lexus auto dealership, sexual harassment was alleged to have occurred. Read the story here at washingtontimes.com.

In a recent settlement between the dealership and the plaintiffs, the dealership agreed to pay $375,000. The lawsuit alleged that young female employees were harassed daily by managers, physically, verbally, and in humiliating form.

It is against the law to sexually harass a person at the workplace, and within the past 20 years, much progress has been made to eliminate sexual harassment from places of employment. However despite this, women are continually confronted with such humiliating behavior.

Women who are sexually harassed at work are legally entitled to civil remedies, including monetary damages. In addition, an employer may not retaliate against a complainant for filing a lawsuit for sexual harassment.
