Backdating auto insurance
According to the lead plaintiff, the dealer charged 9 for etch that she didn’t request.
The increase in the service contract was an illegal finance charge. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and an auto dealer settled a sexual harassment lawsuit brought on behalf of five former female workers.
The indictment alleged the seven committed 111 “overt acts” of defrauding customers by overcharging them for theft-protection packages and subsequent attempts to cover up illegal practices.
The dealership also paid restitution in the amount of .1 million.
One employee said a co-worker pulled her dress down in front of a customer while other women alleged they endured repeated propositioning as well as lewd comments from fellow staffers.
Under the settlement, the dealership also agreed to provide sexual harassment training and to revise its harassment policies.
