West Virginia manager facing second sexual harassment lawsuit

A West Virginia mine manager is facing a lawsuit for sexual harassment for the second time. The manager of the Raven Crest Mine has been named in a civil claim by a woman who worked as a secretary with the company. The woman claims that she was faced with inappropriate advances and that she was asked to perform sexual favors. She is seeking damages for emotional pain and suffering from sexual harassment.

The woman alleges that, in addition to unwanted sexual advances of a verbal nature, she was also subjected to physical sexual conduct.Mentioned in the lawsuit is a specific incident in which the manager purportedly texted an offensive photo of his body parts to the woman. Despite reporting the incident through the appropriate channels, the woman claims that the manager saw no disciplinary action for his behavior.

As a result of this and other incidents of sexual harassment, the woman says that she has suffered from mental anguish, emotional pain, degradation and embarrassment. In addition to the individual manager named in the suit, the mine company itself is also included as a defendant. She must establish her claim by presenting evidence that the company's failure to protect her and others from unwanted sexual advances resulted in the alleged harassment.

Every West Virginia worker deserves a workplace that is free from sexual harassment. When faced with unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other forms of harassment, an employee has the right to file a report with the employer. Additionally, an employment law attorney can offer advise and support regarding potential financial recovery for victims of sexual harassment in the workplace.
