Have you been harassed at work?
Two women have broken their silence about their alleged sexual harassment experiences involving their supervisor at work.
The lawsuit has been filed against ABM Industries, Inc., ABM Janitorial Services, Inc., ABM Onsite Services West, Merchants Building Maintenance Company, and two male supervisors by three woman, two of which spoke at a press conference. The incident occurred at a Fresco, California office location.
It's not the first time ABM has appeared on the lawsuit radar. There have been multiple suits, settlements, and complains of sexual harassment previously, as detailed here.
One of the alleged victims stated, "He harassed me, he touched me, he said things to me verbally. He made me suffer a lot. I didn’t know what to do because he said that if I said anything no one would believe me because he was the boss and I just was a worker.” The suit seeks damages and restitution over the company's failure to prevent harassment and discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, gender violence, sexual battery, and more.
