Dive Brief:

  • The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) says a New York-based special education agency must pay $57,000 and other relief to a job candidate for rescinding her employment offer when she refused to socialize with the agency’s chief executive officer.
  • The complaint states that Special Education Associates’ CEO asked a job candidate for a date after offering her employment. After she refused and said she hoped her employment with the agency could move forward, the CEO rescinded the job offer and hired a man instead.
  • EEOC filed the sexual harassment claims under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Special Education Associates opted to settle the case.
