Hometown Buffet Settles Hostile Workplace Lawsuit

Hometown Buffet has agreed to settle a lawsuit that was filed against the restaurant chain by the EEOC on behalf of teens and women who were subjected to a sexually hostile workplace that included verbal and physical abuse.  As part of the settlement, Hometown Buffet will pay $710,000 to the victims and will implement measures designed to prevent sexual harassment at its El Cahon location.

The EEOC alleged that Hometown Buffet tolerated and failed to prevent a pattern of ongoing sexual harassment in which male managers, supervisors, and co-workers subjected female employees to a sexually hostile workplace, including groping, hugging, kissing, sexual advances, and stalking employees outside the workplace.
