The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed suit against a Worthington, Minnesota, office furniture and office supply company.

The EEOC says Davis Typewriter Company violated federal civil rights laws by permitting its operations manager to create a sexually hostile working environment against one of its female employees.

According to the EEOC’s lawsuit, between March and July 2010, Davis Typewriter Company’s operations manager commandeered the company’s security camera system to stream hours of footage of a former employee’s breasts and body onto his office computer.

The EEOC says its investigation indicated that when Tracey Kelley learned of her manager’s surreptitious surveillance, and notified another manager and Davis Typewriter’s owner, the company failed to take sufficient steps to correct the behavior or prevent it from occurring again in the future.

Kelley was forced to quit, and the EEOC is seeking, among other things, back pay, compensatory and punitive damages on her behalf.
