$540,803 - Three Male Plaintiffs Sexually Harassed by Male Supervisors in a Factory
Plaintiffs were three males in their 30s, who worked in a factory.
During the course of their employment, their supervisors would touch them in sexually inappropriate ways and make sexual comments, making fun of them for being gay even though they were heterosexuals and their supervisors knew it.
The Company defended itself by taking the position that the touching and comments were all "horse play" and were not sexual.
Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP was able to establish the likelihood that a court and jury would conclude that the touching and statements were in fact sexually based under California law even though the supervisors probably had no sexual interest in the Plaintiffs.
RESULT: $540,803 settlement on behalf of Plaintiffs.
