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.
