The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced it has settled its class sexual harassment lawsuit against a large department store chain for $500,000 and substantial remedial relief on behalf of a class of 12 female former employees who were sexually harassed by an assistant store manager in two states. <br /><br />The EEOC said that the company knew that the assistant store manager was sexually harassing young female subordinates at the California store, but failed to take appropriate action to stop the misconduct. Instead, the company transferred him to a managerial position in its Colorado store and failed to notify the new store about his history of sexual harassment. <br /><br />In addition to paying $500,000 to the 12 women, the consent decree settling the suit provides an injunction prohibiting the company from discriminating based on sex or retaliation. The company further agreed that, henceforth, if it transfers an employee from one store to another after it receives a sexual harassment complaint about the employee, the new store will be advised of the complaint.<br />
