Federal authorities say a prison management group has agreed to pay $140,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit in Arizona.
The Arizona Civil Rights Division and U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced the settlement Monday involving the GEO Group Inc.
The EEOC and ACRD alleged that male managers at a GEO-managed private prison facility in Florence sexually harassed numerous female employees and fostered an atmosphere of sexual intimidation and harassment.
They claimed that one prison supervisor at Florence West routinely made crude, obscene and suggestive sexual remarks to female employees, often in front of other management officials who didn't stop the harassment.
Florida-based GEO runs more than 100 private prison facilities across the country.
