Chevron Settles Suit On Sexual Harassment
Chevron Corp. agreed Tuesday to pay $2.2 million to settle a lawsuit brought by four women who accused the company of retaliating against them after they had complained of sexual harassment.
The women claimed they were targets of sexual advances from colleagues and managers at Chevron’s Information Technology Co. They also said they found pornographic messages on a company computer system, and one woman received an anonymous sadistic pornographic image through her company e-mail, the lawsuit said.
When they complained, the lawsuit said, the company began monitoring their phone calls and e-mail, installed a surveillance camera outside one woman’s office and labeled all four as troublemakers.
