Wyoming Woman Alleges Sexual Harassment against Employer
A woman from Wyoming has filed suit against her employer claiming sexual harassment and discrimination based on her gender. According to documents filed with the court, the woman began working at a local electric company and was the only female electrician on staff. The company did not have a sexual harassment policy on file at the time the woman started working. According to the suit, the woman's direct supervisor began making sexually explicit comments to her soon after she began her employment. This male supervisor would ask this female employee questions about her sex life and which male employees she would consider having sex with. Several months after her employment began, the female electrician went to the owner of the company and complained of the sexual harassment. According to the woman, nothing was done about the sexual harassment, and she was passed over for jobs that could produce overtime. It is the plaintiff's position that this was retaliation for speaking up about the sexual harassment. Nearly a year after starting her job, the woman was fired. The plaintiff filed a claim with the EEOC, and on behalf of the plaintiff, the EEOC is seeking an unspecified amount of damages from the company. Moreover, the EEOC is demanding the woman receive her old job or front pay.
