Customer-support firm pays $3.5 mln to end EEOC sex harassment suit

A company that provides customer support services to many Fortune 500 firms will pay $3.5 million to settle an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission lawsuit accusing it of tolerating widespread sexual harassment of employees in California by managers and coworkers.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence O’Neill in Fresno on Tuesday approved a three-year consent decree between California-based Alorica Inc and the EEOC that also requires the company to reinstate workers who quit or were fired after allegedly being harassed. The settlement is the EEOC’s largest in a sexual harassment case since the #MeToo movement began last year and brought renewed attention to the issue.
