Martin Subpoenaed in Mitsubishi Sexual Harassment Case

Former U.S. Labor Secretary Lynn Martin has been subpoenaed to testify on her study of sexual harassment at Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi hired Martin last year to study workplace practices at their Illinois plant, one month after the EEOC filed a lawsuit claiming more than 300 women had been sexually harassed and discriminated against by the management there. Martin, who spent 9 months with a task force reviewing policies and procedures at the plant, will give a deposition on what she learned and suggestions to to improve workplace conditions.
