SHOCK!!! SEXUAL HARASSMENT COSTS INDEPENDENCE AUTO ZONE $2.6 MILLION!!!



Here's an important look and a costly reminder that things are changing in the workplace . . . Discrimination and harassment (even from customers) aren't going to hold up, not even in Meth Town. Check it:

CHECK THIS WORD OF A GROUNDBREAKING VERDICT AGAINST AN INDEPENDENCE AUTOZONE!!!

This one is interesting because it reveals that employers are supposed to make their their workplace isn't hostile even if that means putting customers in check.

Here are the deets:

Woman awarded $2.6 million in sex harassment suit

By: Scott Lauck February 2014

A Jackson County jury awarded nearly $2.6 million — most of it in punitive damages — to a woman who alleged that she was sexually harassed at an AutoZone in Independence.

In 2010, Delise Diaz alleged that two frequent customers at the auto parts chain began to say sexually charged things to her at work and to touch her inappropriately. Examples included the men asking her what her bra size was and grabbing her rear end.

Diaz complained about the customer’s conduct, but she alleged that nothing was done and that the harassment continued for more than a year. Kristi L. Kingston, an attorney with Bratcher Gockel & Kingston in Kansas City who represented Diaz, said she was able to show at trial that the company didn’t want to anger customers who did significant business at the store.

“The theme we developed was that AutoZone put the business these customers brought above the safety of its employees,” Kingston said.

When will strippers file suit for being sexually harassed by customers?

Moral of the story: It is OK if the Federal & State spends decades not enforcing laws that guarantee wage equity between men and women, but if a customer tells a broad she has a nice set of hooters your ass is out 2.6 million. I just love America!
