ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque companies operating under the name of Select Staffing will pay $199,500 to five female employees to settle a lawsuit that alleged the women were subjected to sexual harassment while working at the Albuquerque Police Department's public-records unit.
The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced Thursday that a federal judge approved the settlement of the EEOC's suit filed against Real Time Staffing Services Inc., Employment Solutions Management Inc. and Employbridge LLC.
The EEOC lawsuit alleged the women were subjected to sexual comments and unwelcome touching.
The companies don't acknowledge liability or management wrongdoing n the settlement.
Four of the five women in the Select Staffing case previously received a $490,000 settlement from the city.
