Destination Resorts sued for sexual harassment

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a lawsuit against Destination Resorts & Hotels after it failed to stop an employee from being sexually harassed at The Resort at Squaw Creek, a ski resort near Lake Tahoe that the company manages.

The EEOC claims that Shira Garfinkel was subjected to sexual harassment by a co-worker, who made unwanted advances.  When Garfinkel rejected the advances, she was threatened and her house was broken into by the co-worker.

Garfinkel said, “Even after the harasser threatened me and broke into my house, my employer did not take it seriously.  I kept begging the company to do something to protect me.  Instead of taking action against the harasser, I was the one who suffered consequences.  I felt punished for speaking out.”
