Senor Frog’s to pay $350,000 sexual harassment settlement


The former operator of the now-closed Senor Frog’s restaurant and bar in Waikiki will pay $350,000 to settle the sexual harassment claims of 13 female workers, including three teenaged girls.

Restaurant managers were among those involved in the alleged harassment.

La Rana Hawaii and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission agreed to terms settling the claims that the young women were allegedly sexually harassed or retaliated against between 2007 and 2012.

The EEOC in April reached a $150,000 settlement with Altres, the company contracted to provide human resources services to La Rana.
