International Profit Associates (IPA), a telemarketer located in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, will pay $8 million to settle an EEOC sexual harassment lawsuit.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced that IPA, which is owned by John Burgess, will be compensating 82 women who suffered sexual harassment at the company.
The EEOC had alleged that the harassment involved a systemic pattern of sexual assaults and propositions, inappropriate touching, and crude sexual comments. EEOC had also contended that the highest ranking officers of IPA not only fostered a pattern and practice of sexual harassment but personally engaged in the harassment themselves.
