Sexual Harassment Case Against Retail Grocery Chain Defeated in Arbitration

A deli worker for a large Northern California retail grocer sued her manager and the store for sexual harassment, battery and retaliation, demanding lost wages, emotional distress and punitive damages.  Mid-way through the litigation, the plaintiff was persuaded to resolve her claims before a privately selected arbitrator.  After a week-long arbitration, the arbitrator rendered a final and binding decision in favor of the grocery retailer on all counts.
