Levy Vinick Burrell Hyams LLP, along with the National Women’s Law Center, a renowned women’s rights organization, represents three women workers at a cable industry manufacturing plant in San Diego in their claims for sexual harassment, including one woman who was sexually assaulted. The plaintiffs are women of color who worked as cable assemblers for CableConn Industries, Inc.
Despite fear of retaliation, the women reported sexual harassment to CableConn management. As alleged in the complaint filed in San Diego Superior Court, instead of appropriately investigating or addressing its supervisors’ misconduct, CableConn— including its CEO and President, protected the two supervisors, allowing them to remain in positions where they used their power continue harassing the three women. CableConn also retaliated against the workers and constructively discharged two of the women, all while claiming to help them.
The lawsuit also seeks damages for violation of California’s wage and hour laws, including failing to provide the women with legally required meal breaks and forcing them to work more than 10 consecutive hours without appropriate compensation.
