When an employer subjected its employees to pervasive harassment, the EEOC had to get involved.
Porous Materials, a manufacturer in Ithaca, NY, is under fire for harassment based on race, sex and national origin, according to a recent EEOC lawsuit.
The extreme bullying and harassment allegedly included a manager using racial slurs toward his employees, calling foreign workers “terrorists,” telling immigrants to leave America and making unwanted sexual advances toward female employees.
The EEOC further claims the owner of Porous Materials did nothing to put a stop to the harassment. This is a violation of the Civil Rights Act.
Porous Materials must pay $93,000 in monetary relief and report any future harassment allegations directly to the EEOC.
