Toyota worker sues for harassment

A Toyota employee has filed a $190m (£103m) lawsuit in the US, alleging that the carmaker’s top American boss sexually harassed her.

Sayaka Kobayashi, 42, claims Toyota North American chief executive Hideaki Otaka, 65, made repeated sexual advances to her in 2005.

Toyota said it had a “zero tolerance” policy towards sexual harassment, but declined to make any further comment
