EEOC v. DynCorp (Sexual Harassment and Retaliation)

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) alleged DynCorp International violated federal law by subjecting employee James Friso to a hostile work environment based on his sex and by retaliating against him after he complained. According to the EEOC’s lawsuit, from November 2006 through January 2007, Friso was subjected to harassment based on his sex by a male co-worker while working for the company in Taji, Iraq. The EEOC also alleged that DynCorp transferred Friso to a lower-paying job at another work site after he complained to management about the harassment. In January 2012, DynCorp settled the lawsuit, agreeing to pay Friso $155,000 and provide anti-harassment and anti-retaliation training to its employees.
