TruGreen LandCare To Pay $100,000 In Sexual Harassment Settlement

The Las Vegas office of TruGreen LandCare has agreed to pay $100,000 to settle a sexual harassment complaint from a female employee.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported the settlement today (Monday).

According to the commission, a male manager at the company's Summerlin office intimidated and harassed a female employee, calling her obscene, gender-based derogatory terms.

The commission says the manager yelled at the woman almost daily.

After the woman complained she was transferred to work as a manual laborer in the field as punishment.

The company agreed to pay the woman $100,000, provide harassment
training to its employees, and make semiannual reports for two years about its employment practices.
