WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Enforge, LLC, a Michigan-based tie rods and automotive parts company conducting business in North Carolina, violated federal law when it subjected a female employee to a sexually hostile work environment and then fired her for complaining about it, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today. The EEOC said that Enforge knew the employee was being harassed but failed to take action to protect her, and then retaliated against her for complaining.
