Two employees of construction subcontractor Trade Off have accused male supervisors and peers of sexual harassment.

Ashley Foster, 27, alleges in a Federal Equal Employment Opportunity complaint that Trade Off s foreman at 55 Hudson Yards, LaTroy Pollard, repeatedly exposed his genitals to her while they were working on the site, the New York Daily News reported. She said Pollard s cousin, Albert Thomas, who worked as deputy foreman, sent her an unsolicited picture of his penis.

Foster says she told the company s vice president of operations about the harassment but never received an update on an investigation into her complaint.

Another employee, Tierra Williams, alleges that Trade Off employees and爱上海同城论坛

Williams claims that she was fired shortly after she reported this incident and other harassment.

A spokesperson for Trade Off, Brian Krapf, said Foster remains an employee of the company.

“Trade Off was only recently made aware that an EEOC complaint had been filed against them by Ms. Foster and Ms. Williams, and are currently investigating the allegations, Krapf said in a statement. Trade Off has a zero-tolerance policy and takes any charge of sexual harassment very seriously.

The complaint also names Gilbane and Related Companies, saying that the general contractor and owner failed to prevent or remedy the sexual harassment at the上海同城对对碰交友社区
