MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Michigan lumber supplier has agreed to pay $55,000 to settle allegations of sexual harassment at its Wisconsin sawmill.
A federal lawsuit accused Biewer Wisconsin Sawmill Inc. of failing to prevent a sexually hostile work environment.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Tuesday the money will go to two female employees.
A message left with the company’s sawmill in Prentice, Wis., late Tuesday was not immediately returned.
According to the EEOC, a Biewer supervisor repeatedly exposed himself to female employees over several years. The company didn’t fire him until prosecutors charged him with lewd and lascivious behavior, according to the EEOC.
Parent company Biewer Lumber is headquartered in St. Clair, Mich.
