KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A manager for a staffing firm that hired and supervised employees at a Kansas City, Kansas manufacturing plant is facing a lawsuit for allegedly making explicit sexual comments and demanding sexual favors from female employees.
The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Thursday it has filed suit against Staff Management | SMX. The company provides hiring and supervision services at the Proctor and Gamble manufacturing plant.
According to details in the suit, a male manager called a female employee “baby,” told her she was “sexy” and asked for oral sex in exchange for paid time off.
The female employee told a supervisor about the harassment. The supervisor advised the female employee that she should “screw him” and take the extra pay, according to the suit.
The EEOC suit alleges the harassment continued when the male manager exposed himself to the female employee.
The female employee later quit her job as a result of the alleged harassment.
The EEOC attempted to reach an agreement with the company before filing the suit. Those talks were not successful.
