PASCAGOULA — A Pascagoula company has agreed to pay $75,000 to settle a sex-based retaliation discrimination lawsuit filed by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Analytic Stress Relieving Inc. had terminated a female employee in retaliation for her complaints about alleged sexual harassment, according to EEOC.
The Mississippi Press reported the company serves petrochemical and power companies.
Federal officials said the unidentified employee was fired after complaining that an acting supervisor engaged in sexually suggestive behavior in the workplace.
Analytic Stress will pay $75,000 to the former employee, EEOC said. The company also agreed to provide sex-based discrimination, retaliation and sexual harassment training for supervisors and take other steps to discourage such behavior.
