C.H. Robinson charged with sexual harassment

| 10/30/2006

Six women who used to work for C.H. Robinson Worldwide have filed sexual harassment claims against the company. The company is a non-asset based transportation company and is one the nation's largest third party logistics companies.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the claims include charges of lewd name-calling and pornography on computer screens.

A company spokesman denied the claims, telling the Star-Tribune, "We do not have a hostile work environment and we do not discriminate."

C.H. Robinson - which is headquartered in Eden Prairie, MN - paid out $15 million several years ago to settle a separate lawsuit over sexual discrimination and harassment.
