NY — Tavern on the Green agrees to pay $2.2 million to settle a discrimination and harassment action filed by the EEOC alleging harassment against females and minorities. According to the EEOC’s press release, “The EEOC charged in the case that Tavern on the Green engaged in severe and pervasive sexual, racial, and national origin harassment of female, black, and Hispanic employees. The sexual harassment included graphic comments and demands for various sex acts, as well as groping of women’s buttocks and breasts. The racial and national origin harassment included epithets toward black and Hispanic employees and ridiculing Hispanics for their accents. The restaurant also retaliated against employees for refusing to consent to and/or objecting to the harassment, according to the EEOC.” A consent decree has been submitted to the U.S. District Court in New York for approval of the settlement terms.
