Jiffy Lube Franchisee to Settle Lawsuit

Aug 2, 2004 | AP

A Jiffy Lube franchise operator has agreed to pay $299,000 to settle a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit brought by three female employees through the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The EEOC lawsuit claimed supervisors and other employees at a Lynwood, Calif., Jiffy Lube franchise operated by The Oil Shoppe Inc. created a hostile work environment by making explicit sexual remarks and other egregious comments to female employees, two of whom were teenagers.

One of the female employees also claimed she was fired when she filed a complaint with the company.

The alleged violations of the 1964 Civil Rights Act are punishable by compensatory and punitive damages of up to $100,000 per victim for employers with more than 100 workers but fewer than 201.

As part of the settlement, Alamitos Enterprises, which has taken over the franchise from The Oil Shoppe, has also agreed to provide training to its employees and managers.
