LAS VEGAS (Legal Newsline) — The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced April 12 that Candid Litho Printing LTD will pay $242,799 after allegations of sex discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation.

"Harassment in the workplace remains a persistent problem, with almost a third of EEOC charges including harassment allegations,” Wendy Martin, local director of the EEOC's Las Vegas Local Office, said in a statement. “The EEOC remains committed to eliminating harassment and other forms of discrimination and retaliation in the workplace."

Candid Litho Printing, which does business as Candid Worldwide, is a printing and graphic arts company with facilities in Las Vegas and Long Island City, New York. According to the EEOC, a female production manager at the company was sexually harassed and discriminated against by the general manager of the Las Vegas facility. 

"As the #MeToo movement has demonstrated, female employees continue to face sex discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace," Anna Park, regional attorney for the EEOC's Los Angeles District, said in a statement. "It is not enough for employers to have anti-discrimination policies and engage in regular training. Employers must also realize the importance of holding decision-makers accountable for following through on their policies by acting promptly when harassment allegations arise."
