Chipotle settles with male sexual harassment victim for $95,000

Customers of Chipotle restaurants in Florida have no way to know what might be going on among the employees unless someone makes a public complaint. Such was the case when a 22-year-old man employed as a shift manager at one restaurant accused his general manager of sexual harassment. After being ignored by upper management, he reported his workplace abuse to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the fast food chain has now settled with him for $95,000 and agreed to strengthen company policies.

Fox host Britt McHenry files sexual harassment lawsuit

Florida fans of the Fox Nation host Britt McHenry may have wondered why she and Fox news contributor Tyrus, whose real name is George Murdoch, stopped appearing together on the program "Un-PC."

Sexual harassment common in legal industry

The results of an international study indicate that sexual harassment is prevalent in the legal profession. The survey, which was an effort of the International Bar Association, included responses from nearly 7,000 individuals. Both attorneys and non-attorneys were asked about bullying and sexual harassment in their workplaces. Just over 36% of the surveyed women said they'd been victimized by sexual harassment in workplaces. Employers in Florida are required by law to provide a safe environment for their workers, and harassing behavior on the part of superiors, co-workers, vendors or customers may give rise to actionable legal claims.

Tesla plant workers challenge discrimination

While Florida drivers might admire Tesla vehicles for their innovation and luxury, some workers at Tesla's factory allege that the company's solar panel factory is beset by racism and discrimination.

According to reports, the factory is heavily segregated, and black and Latino workers have received worse assignments and are more likely to be laid off.

Former CBS exec alleges racial discrimination

Workers in Florida continue to suffer discrimination on the job, even decades after civil rights laws went into effect. Workplace discrimination can even affect high-ranking executives and other professionals in top decision-making positions. One former executive at CBS television network filed a lawsuit against his former employer, accusing the company of firing him for discriminatory reasons. The former reality TV executive, a man of Japanese descent, says that non-white executives at the network were systematically mistreated on the job. Prior to his dismissal, he served as senior executive vice president for alternative programming.
