    CRST Wins Sexual Harassment Case

    February 12, 2010 by Truckdrivernews · Leave a Comment 

    CRST based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa has won a case against the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for sexual harassment.

    Seems odd to me that 230 women filed complaints against CRST for sexual harassment, and Chief U.S. District Judge Linda Reade found the case to be poorly put together.

    I for one and glad to see this, and I am also mad that taxpayers are the ones who have to pay the money back that was evidently wasted.

    230 complaints sounded kind of fishy, it turns out the legal system thought so too. All but four of the original 230 cases were dismissed last year.

    Chief U.S. District Judge Linda Reade ruled that CRST was entitled to recover attorney’s fees and court costs because the government mishandled the case. She ruled the EEOC didn’t investigate the specific allegations of the individual drivers before filing a legal complaint, “let alone issue a reasonable cause determination as to those allegations or conciliate them.â�� As a result, Reade found CRST didn’t have a meaningful opportunity to settle the complaints without the expense of a federal lawsuit.
