NYC Faces Sexual and Racial Harassment Case

New York City is being sued by the U.S. Government for failing to respond adequately to complaints of sexual and racial harassment by four city employees participating in workfare programs. In this unusual case, the federal government is seeking compensatory damanges and the halting of improper conduct by NYC on behalf of four city employees. Three of the plaintiffs claim that supervisors touched them improperly, while a fourth said she faced racial caricatures and a noose hanging in a window of a building where she was on assignment as a painter.
