MITSUBISHI GETS ITS REPORT CARD
ON FEB. 11, MITSUBISHI Motor Mfg. got the report it ordered on allegations of sexual harassment at its Normal (Ill.) auto plant--but the company isn't off the hook yet. Last year, 30 current and former female employees and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission accused the company of allowing widespread sexual harassment at the plant. In response, the company hired ex-Labor Secretary Lynn Martin to improve workplace rules. She has made 34 recommendations, such as creating a task force for handling complaints that would report to the CEO. But the company reports no progress in talks with the EEOC and the 30 women, who are suing for damages.
