EEOC sues CEO for sexual harassment and ‘coerced sexual intercourse’ with 2 employees

In a suit filed in the Ashland, Kentucky, U.S. District Court, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) alleges that Merchant Management Systems Inc. CEO Brian “Pat” Reed sexually harassed a number of his female workers and then threatened them with retaliation if they complained about the harassment.

The sexual harassment consisted of unwelcome sexual comments, touching, groping and coerced sexual intercourse on the part of Reed.  The women reported that Reed threatened them with either dismissal or denial of employment opportunities such as raises and promotions.

Attempts to reach a voluntary out-of-court settlement through the EEOC’s conciliation process failed.

The EEOC alleges that the actions of MMS and Reed “were done with malice or with reckless indifference” to the women’s federally protected rights as well as to deprive the women of “equal employment opportunities and to otherwise adversely affect their respective employee status.”
