University of Phoenix

Santa Teresa, NM: (Aug-29-07) The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission brought charges against the University of Phoenix's campus in Santa Teresa, alleging that the college retaliated against an employee. The commission claimed that Lorreta Grado, longtime university employee, was subjected to sexually offensive comments and conduct by a high-ranking management official at the campus. The suit, filed on her behalf, stated that Grado was punished for complaining about the harassment by being denied a promotion.

In a settlement reached, the University of Phoenix's campus in Santa Teresa agreed to pay Grado and her attorney $225,000, to resolve the sexual harassment claim. Grado also will receive a letter of reference and a letter of apology. Further, as part of the settlement, the university also agreed to train its New Mexico employees to prevent gender discrimination and retaliation in the future. [KOB NEWS: GENDER HARASSMENT]
