Citation: 9 N.J.A.R. 392
Decision Date: 1985
Synopsis: Complainant contended that she had been unlawfully dis- criminated against by respondent on the basis of sex in that she was sexually harassed by Anthony Styllanos, its owner. The administrative law judge assigned to the case determined that Anthony Styllanos had subjected the complainant to a substantially discriminatory work en- vironment by his words and conduct. The administrative law judge found that Anthony Styllanos used his position as owner/supervisor to subject complainant to unwelcome sexual advances and that her refusal thereof caused complainant to be assigned duties not assigned other waitresses and eventually resulted in her constructive discharge. The administrative law judge concluded that such sexual harassment in the workplace is prohibited by the Law Against Discrimination and that complainant carried her ultimate burden of persuasion. The administrative law judge awarded monetary damages for pain and suffering and out-of-pocket expenses. Upon review, this initial decision was accepted by the Division on Civil Rights.
