According to a lawsuit filed by the EEOC, two female cashiers at Love’s truck stop in Buckeye, Arizona, ages 18 and 20, were allegedly subjected to unwanted sexual touching and pressing, crude and obscene remarks, sexual demands and innuendos, and demands for personal information—by customers, sometimes in front of other customers. The EEOC asserted that Love’s management knew about and tolerated this sexually hostile work environment caused by its customers. Further, at least one manager allegedly laughed about it, and another manager said the harassment was to be expected because it is a truck stop. Managers also told the two cashiers to “deal with it,” especially the misconduct of one repeat customer because “he’s always like that.” Should the employer be held liable for workplace harassment by its customers? Explain.
