A northeast Oregon onion producer has settled a sexual harassment suit for $150,000. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, also known as the EEOC, brought the case on the behalf of a female seasonal farm worker at River Point Farms of Hermiston.
She says she faced verbal abuse from her male supervisor from 2005 to 2010. The supervisor requested sexual favors, constantly told her that women are inferior to men and that she should submit to beatings by her husband.
