EEOC sues Boh Bros. for alleged sexually hostile work environment

The EEOC has filed a lawsuit against Boh Bros. Construction Co. for allegedly subjecting a male employee to sexual harassment and a hostile work environment that consisted of repeated “unwelcome verbal and physical sexual taunting, innuendo, and sexual advances” by the site superintendent at a post-Hurricane Katrina bridge repair project.

The lawsuit claims that ironworker Kerry Woods was harassed in 2006 by the superintendent, who accused Woods of being a homosexual and who stood behind him and pretended to have anal sex with him.

After Woods complained about the workplace bullying, Boh Bros. allegedly retaliated against him by transferring him to another company facility and reducing his salary.  Woods was then fired in early 2007 shortly after his transfer.
