"Red Lobster settles EEOC sexual harassment case"[subscription required], 30 Apr 2015

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission [EEOC] has reached a $160,000 settlement of a sexual harassment lawsuit against Red Lobster Restaurants L.L.C., in which a manager was charged with sexually harassing three female employees...Under terms of the settlement, in addition to paying the women $160,000, the restaurant will provide training to all of its employees at that facility regarding compliance with federal antidiscrimination laws, among other provisions...“It’s especially pernicious when a manager is the alleged harasser.”Red Lobster said in its statement, “Red Lobster values having a diverse, safe workplace where all individuals can pursue their professional dreams. We take allegations of this nature very seriously, which is why we conducted a thorough investigation and promptly terminated the individual five years ago.“We have no tolerance for harassment and conduct ongoing training to reinforce these values.”
