LAS VEGAS (AP) - A federal judge in Nevada is ordering one of
two companies providing Las Vegas airport wheelchair services to
implement policies to prevent employee sexual harassment.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Friday
that it asked the judge to act because Prospect Airport Services
Inc. failed to protect employees even after a $75,000 settlement in
the case of a man receiving unwanted sexual advances by a female
co-worker.

Company lawyer Tom Murphy says that Prospect had already agreed
to do most of the things the judge ordered.

U.S. District Judge Kent Dawson in Las Vegas issued the
injunction Wednesday.

Acting EEOC Las Vegas office chief Adriana Lopez says 16 percent
of all sexual harassment charges at the EEOC last year were filed
by men.
