EEOC Charges Elite Wireless Group in Sacramento

by | Nov 12, 2019 | Harassment

In a recently filed lawsuit, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (the “EEOC”) charged that Sprint-authorized retailer Elite Wireless Group, Inc. “violated federal law when the retailer failed to address a male store manager who sexually assaulted a young female employee.” Among other things, the EEOC investigation found that a 34 year-old store manager, who worked in the Elite Wireless Arden Fair Mall location in Sacramento, subjected a 19 year-old sales clerk to “unwelcome sexual advances and physical touching. The sales clerk also repeatedly received. . .social media ‘friend’ requests and invites from the manager. The harassment escalated to a sexual assault when the sales clerk found herself alone with the manager in his hotel room, where he had invited staff to join him after the company’s holiday party.” Read the full EEOC press release here.
