Lawsuits: Costco managers at 2 NJ stores sexually harassed female employees for years
Two new lawsuits are alleging the managers at two different Costco stores in New Jersey have been sexually harassing their female employees for years, with few repercussions.
One suit was filed last month against a manager at the location in Edison. The suit alleges the manager sexually harassed a woman employee by stalking her throughout the store during her lunch break. The suit also alleges he demanded she give him her cellphone number, despite her refusals.
The other complaint was filed last December out of a store in Hazlet, and alleges two female employees have been facing sexual harassment from a manager for years, beginning in 2013.
The Costco wholesale corporation, the managers, and the store supervisors at each location were all named in both suits.
