Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against General Electric Settled

An upstate sexual harassment lawsuit, Knapp v. General Electric Company, 16-cv-00340, has been settled (under undisclosed terms) following mandatory mediation.

Plaintiff alleged, in her March 23, 2016 federal court complaint, that she was constructively discharged after she complained about sexual harassment. Specifically, plaintiff alleged (e.g.) that a supervisor left her notes such as “you look sexy today”, asked her out on dates, made sexually charged comments and threats, and fondled himself in front of plaintiff, and that her employer did nothing to address her complaints. She asserted claims of discrimination, hostile work environment, and retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the New York State Human Rights Law.
