Former City of Spokane Wastewater Management Wastewater Operator II Sonya O’Brien poses for a photograph above the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility, Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016, in Spokane, Wash. In January 2013, O’Brien reported to the human resources department that she was sexually harassed by about twenty-five male employees at the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility from April 2008 until April 2013, which is when she quit her job. She claims that minimal changes were made after an investigation into her claim. O’Brien also filed a federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint in April 2013, which found a hostile work environment and that sexual harassment was present. The case is currently in conciliation. (Young Kwak/Pacific Northwest Inlander)
