The EEOC’s sexual harassment suit against Red Lobster presented a more typical allegations: A manager pressed his groin against women, grabbed them, groped them and made sexually offensive comments. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.
In a written statement, Red Lobster said that it has "strong defenses" against the allegations. "The allegations relate to inappropriate conduct by a manager that occurred three years ago. We have a zero tolerance policy for any kind of harassment or discrimination. As soon as we were made aware of this situation in 2010, we investigated and terminated the manager responsible," the restaurant said.
