St. Louis (KSDK) -- A restaurant in the Galleria will pay $23,000 and provide training against sexual harassment to all employees as the result of a sexual harasssment lawsuit settlement, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The EEOC filed a suit last September that alleged Villa Galleria allowed an employee to be subjected to sexual harassment by an assistant supervisor.  The employee alleged the supervisor tried to put his hands up her skirt and kiss her.

The victim will receive the payment and the training will be for all management and non-managemnt employees at its Galleria location.  Villa Galleria also agreed to report internal complaints of sex harassment to the EEOC for the decree's 18-month term.
