We all have expectations for what it will be like working at our place of employment. Maybe we fall short when it comes to day-to-day work tasks, but one expectation that should always exist is being treated properly in the workplace. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. An employee might feel mistreated or harassed. Even more so, an employee may find that these acts are sexual in nature, leading to a sexual harassment suit.
According to recent reports, a restraint owner in Chula Vista faces allegations of sexual harassment. Based on reports, the owner of Tapioca Express, an Asian-themed fast food chain, is accused of wrapping his arms around two female employees, pressed his body up against them, and made inappropriate comments about their bodies.
The EEOC made a statement explaining that some of the alleged victims decided to quit their jobs because of the escalating sexual harassment. The lawsuit filed by the employees charge the defendant with failing to prevent alleged harassment or correct the situation despite numerous complaints. The lawsuit also seeks monetary damages for the female employees allegedly subjected to the demeaning behaviors, calling for injunctive relief that is intended to prevent, and correct this type of discrimination.
Being a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace is a difficult situation to be in. it is often challenging for employees to speak out about these events, as they are fearful of what might happen. By taking the time to better understand the situation and potential options available, one can ensure their rights are protected.
