A man has filed a lawsuit against Trader Joe's, alleging that he was fired in retaliation for complaining about possible sexual harassment. In this case, the harassment was in the form of a sex toy gift that was given to the plaintiff at a company Christmas party.
The lawsuit states that the plaintiff attended a company Christmas party during his seventh year of working for Trader Joe's. The plaintiff was not scheduled to work on the day that the party took place, but he said he attended anyway out of pressure. He felt that if he did not attend, his relationship with his coworkers might suffer.
