Sexual harassment lawsuit ends in financial settlement

Everyone in Minneapolis is aware that sexual harassment is a serious issue and that every company should have policies which send the message that such behavior will not be tolerated. In spite of these policies, many employees are subjected to sex harassment and complain that their employers did not take their claims seriously or initiate any action against the harasser.
