DiMare Ruskin sexual harassment lawsuit

DiMare Ruskin, Inc., a Florida-based tomato grower and produce provider that was sued for sexual harassment and retaliation by the EEOC, agreed in July to pay $150,000 to two female farmworkers who were allegedly sexually harassed by DiMare Ruskin crew leaders Ricardo Campbell and his son, Richard Lee Campbell.

The EEOC also claims that the two women were fired in retaliation when they opposed the alleged sexual harassment by Ricardo Campbell and Richard Lee Campbell.

Robert E. Weisberg, regional attorney of the EEOC Miami District Office, said, “Sexual harassment against women in the agricultural industry is a big problem. DiMare Ruskin took a major step in the right direction by agreeing to establish nationwide policies and procedures designed to prevent sexual harassment in the future — and to provide a means for employees to complain when they feel they are being subjected to it.”
