Credit Union accused of Sexual Harassment

Guam - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced today that a local credit union will be paying $75,000 and furnish other relief to settle a sexual harassment case.

According to a media release a male employee in February 2012 filed a charge with the EEOC alleging that he was sexually harassed by a member of Coast 360 Federal Credit Union in 2011, including gestures of a sexual nature. The EEOC ultimately found reasonable cause that the credit union violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for the sexual harassment to which the victim was subjected. 

The press release went on to state that “without admitting liability, Coast 360 Federal Credit Union agreed to enter into a conciliation agreement with the EEOC and the alleged victim, thereby avoiding litigation.  Aside from the mone­tary relief, the credit union agreed to hire a consultant or attorney to provide all employees with live training on how to address and prevent sex discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation in the workplace.  The credit union also agreed to appoint an internal equal employment opportunity officer to review and revise the credit union's anti-harassment policy and complaint procedures as needed.   The EEOC will monitor compliance with the agreement.”

Director of EEOC’s Honolulu Local Office, which has jurisdiction over Guam, states they are pleased the local credit union has worked with the EEOC to reach a resolution that will both prevent sexual harassment and ensure that such issues are properly addressed going forward.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
