An Atlanta-based security company has agreed to pay almost $2 million to settle sexual harassment complaints involving its Birmingham, Ala. office. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says a district manager for U.S. Security Associates Inc. in Birmingham was accused of harassing female employees with sexual demands, inappropriate touching and other offensive conduct. The company previously lost a federal court verdict over the manager’s actions. EEOC says six other women made similar allegations claiming the man sexually harassed them while working as a supervisor for the company in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. The $1.95 million EEOC settlement involves seven women. The company’s website describes it as one of the nation’s large private security firms.
