Briggs better be careful what he says. Of course they came from anonymous individuals, look what happened when they complained! Men are scum in the workplace and they think they can always get away with this sort of behavior!

I have seen women make false statements in this arena more than once. If anyone thinks that there is no chance that these women made up the story for financial gain, need to become more aware of the ways of such a litigeous society.

all I have to say about that this and the taco bell case for $35,000 I would let a man act like a douche bag in front of me. I really don't consider a man talking like a tool sexual harassment though. If you are touched, grabbed, fondled or jabbed with a penis then yeah your getting harassed. Since when is asking for a date sexual harassment??? I'm a girl so if I went up to a guy told him to flash me his peen, ask him out or dance lewdly in front of him he'd file sexual harassment? I don't think so!

Work in factorys can be boring. I have had woman say sexual things to me and I laughed. No problem but when I see 35,000 from the taco bell case should I report it and hope I get it also. I think not im not smooch.

Thats the way it should be.

Just to let you know Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination.The legal definition of sexual harassment is “unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is severe or pervasive and affects working conditions or creates a hostile work environment.”
These women have the right to follow through with their case. If everyone would just respect each one another this problem would not exist!!

You can't actually believe this, can you? This has to be a joke. If its not a joke, then you must not have had proper training on how to be a real man. I feel very sorry for you.

It doesn't matter what ethnicity you come from, no one deserves to be sexually harrassed.
During and after I read the article, I feel Mr. Briggs may be a part of the sexual harrassment. NEVER should an employer doubt that an employee has been sexually harrassed until a full investigation has been done.
It seems a lot of sexual harrassment is going on in the York/Adams region. Everyone..........open your eyes and keep your attention on the work that needs done and stop the inappropriate actions!!!!!!
