"This case shows that sexual harassment can happen to anyone within any organization—whether it is a corporate office or a donut franchise," Shegerian went on to say. "The case illustrates how important it is for every employer to have an anti-discrimination policy in place and to create a culture where employees are encouraged to report inappropriate behavior."
"The young ladies who stepped forward to report this deplorable behavior should be applauded for their bravery," Shegerian says. "So many women fear retaliation for speaking out against sexual harassment, but these ladies have proven the law will protect you when your employer fails to do so."
