A woman in her 20s has filed a damages suit against the great-nephew of the Toyota Group founder and his employer, saying the man sexually harassed her as she was interviewing for a job, sources familiar with the matter said Tuesday.

In a lawsuit filed with the Nagoya District Court, the woman from Aichi Prefecture is seeking about ¥6 million ($53,800) in compensation for emotional distress and other losses from the man, 43, and Aisin AW Co., which controls the world’s top market share in automatic transmissions.
