Firm Settles Employment Sexual Harassment Case
Plaintiff, a woman who worked from home, sued the CEO of her employer for sexual harassment. The CEO had come to Arkansas to inspect his factory there, and requested that Plaintiff pick him up from the airport and take him to his hotel, where Defendant then raped Plaintiff. Defendant also set up a Skype account for Plaintiff, and would Skype call her only to reveal that he was masturbating. Plaintiff’s case settled for $1.425 million in damages for the ongoing sexual harassment.
When a jury rules like this in a sexual harrasment case, they know that it was international, and they also know that the reason this manager was able to get away with this was that the company had to be looking the other way."
