EEOC sues Ky. company over harassment in Wis store
A federal agency is accusing a Kentucky company of permitting a sexually hostile work environment in one of its Wisconsin pharmacies.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Thursday it has filed a federal lawsuit. The suit names Covington, Ky.-based Omnicare Inc., which does business as Pinnacle Pharmacy.
The suit says a pharmacy manager at a La Crosse, Wis., store sexually harassed female employees through unwanted touching and demeaning comments.
The EEOC says several woman complained but pharmacy management didn't help them. The agency says the pharmacy accused the women of misunderstanding the manager and directed them to just avoid him.
A message left with Omnicare was not immediately returned.
