Firm Achieves Justice for Sexually Harassed Employees
A restaurant that employed young women, whose revealing outfits and sex appeal were played up for the benefit of its patrons, was sued by four of its employees for sexual harassment. The four plaintiffs, all young women, were each sexually assaulted under different circumstances by the restaurant’s general manager. One girl was forced to perform fellatio after being lured downstairs under work pretenses, one was drugged and raped after a work event, and another was violently sexually assaulted at work. Our lawyers obtained a $2.3 million settlement for the plaintiffs.
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."
