Mother of Two Teens Files Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Popular Bar In Iowa.

A popular bar in West Des Moines, Iowa is being sued for sexual harassment and retaliation after two teenage sisters say they were harassed and then punished for reporting the misconduct to superiors. Mary Feuerhelm says her two daughters, Kennedy and Sydney, have been scarred for life after working at Wellman’s Pub and Patio. The teens were hired as table runners in August and September of 2016. A lawsuit claims that a cook at Wellman’s, Henry Gutierrez, repeatedly rubbed his pelvis against Kennedy’s rear end. One of the girls also accuses him of pinning her against the counter while grabbing her breasts and buttocks. The lawsuit also states Mr. Gutierrez shut both girls in the walk-in cooler and turned off the lights while other employees watched.

The girls say they repeatedly told management of the harassment and three of the restaurant’s managers are named in the lawsuit having already admitted to knowing about the cook’s behavior. Kennedy and Sydney say they complained about the cook for four months before management told him to quit speaking to the girls. Following that, they say their hours were cut and they were transferred to a different restaurant. The teens say management made it unbearable to work at the new restaurant, so they quit.

El Paso County, Colorado Will Pay Out Nearly $70,000 To Settle Sexual Harassment Complaint Before Litigation.

The reality is that sexual harassment can take place at any place of employment and typically goes unreported out of fear of retaliation by those alleged to be committing the harassment. Victims of unlawful sexual harassment and discrimination are entitled to collect money damages for the injuries they have suffered as a result of the harassment. These money damages compensate the victim for the emotional and physical injuries they have suffered, including any lost wages and medical expenses. The expert sexual harassment attorneys at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates have decades of experience fighting for our Massachusetts based clients.

El Paso County, Colorado will pay nearly $68,000 to settle a sexual harassment complaint made by a Sheriff’s Office employee who claimed she then faced retaliation after reporting it. The payout, approved by county commissioners last week, is the first time the county will spend taxpayer money on a settlement for employment-related claims against a Sheriff’s Department. The details of the charge, filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in April, are not public record. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, the county denied liability for the allegations and maintained that the payment was made to avoid rising legal fees that would likely have exceeded the payout.

Rapper/Producer/Singer Diddy Being Sued For Sexual Harassment By Personal Chef.

Victims of sexual harassment are often in a subordinate position from those who do the harassing. This can lead to many cases of sexual harassment going unreported. However, victims should not be afraid to come forward and can rely on an experienced sexual harassment personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through this complicated litigation process. Our nationally recognized personal injury attorneys have decades of experience fighting for our Massachusetts clients.

Hip Hop artist Diddy (Sean Combs) is being sued by his former personal chef, who says she was subjected to sexual harassment and forced to work long hours without being fully compensated for overtime. Plaintiff Cindy Rueda stated in a sworn declaration filed in connection with her lawsuit against the rapper/producer/singer that she often worked from 9 am to 1:30 am the next day after signing an agreement to become his personal chef in 2015. She also alleges she was exposed to a harassing and hostile work environment.

Ms. Rueda says that in August 2015, she arrived late because of traffic and that Diddy, who was present with house guest Gina Huynh, yelled an obscenity at her and then demanded that she make breakfast. After she was finished making breakfast, she brought the food to Diddy’s bedroom and knocked first, then entered to set up the meal. Upon entering, she noticed Diddy and his guest indisposed and engaged in sexual activity.
