EEOC lawsuit accuses SelectCare bad boss of same-sex sexual harassment

The EEOC has filed a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit against Austin, Texas-based SelectCare Benefits Network, a broker of medications for disadvantaged people.

According to the EEOC, a female employee in SelectCare’s marketing department was subjected to sexual harassment by her female boss on an almost daily basis.

The employee alleges that her bad boss created a hostile work environment by frequently grabbing, poking, and touching the employee’s breasts, buttocks and thighs in front of other coworkers and managers.

The EEOC claims that this boss referred to the employee as “bitch” and “slut” on an almost daily basis.

The employee’s working conditions were allegedly made worse by the company in retaliation for having complained to managers about the alleged sexual harassment.

The employee eventually was forced to quit her job to avoid the alleged hostile work environment.

EEOC attorney Judith Taylor said, “Employers are required by federal law to keep their workplaces free of sexual harassment and to remedy such conduct when it occurs. The EEOC will not hesitate to act when there is such a blatant failure to take any action when employees report abuse – and especially when the employer retaliates against the victim rather than fixing the problem.”
