Southwest Airlines has agreed to pay $100,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit, which was filed by female workers at Oakland International Airport in California.
On behalf of the plaintiff, EEOC said the male employee made sexually suggestive comments to coworker Adriana Martin and other female employees beginning in November 2002. The man was termed as "serial harasser".
Southwest denied the allegations but agreed to pay $100,000 to settle the suit.
In addition, Southwest agreed to revise its harassment policy, provide employees a copy of the policy and require supervisors and managers at the airline's provisioning department in Oakland to undergo at least two hours of anti-harassment and retaliation training.
