OC Pool Cleaning Company To Pay $463K To Settle Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

IRVINE (AP) —An Orange County pool cleaning supply company will pay nearly $463,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by a federal agency that found at least eight female employees had been sexually harassed.

In a statement Wednesday, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says two male supervisors at Irvine, Calif.-based AquaTri pressured the women for dates and sex, touched them inappropriately and offered promotions in exchange for sexual favors.

The supervisors’ actions were reported to the company but no actions were taken against them.

Instead, the EEOC says the women who complained faced retaliation, including demotions and were forced to clean bathrooms.

The women filed a discrimination claim with the EEOC in 2008.

In addition to the monetary relief, the company will revise its complaint policies and implement a company complaint hotline.
