An Alabama Sexual Harassment Lawsuit has been filed against the former CEO of Birmingham Health Care by a former employee who alleges he forced her into a decade-long sexual relationship.
Court documents show that the companies run and owned by the defendant employed the plaintiff from 2002 to 2012. During this time, the victim worked as a grant writer. But she claims she was also forced to have sexual encounters with the CEO. According to Al.com, their relationship continued throughout the next decade and resulted in two children.
The plaintiff argues that her job and security were threatened unless she continued the relationship. The victim states she was forced to attend business trips and stay in the same room as the defendant. Furthermore, the victim claims the CEO had sexual relationships with other employees of the company.
The filing was made after a judge recently ruled that an initial filing was too “broad-brushed” and failed to tie the accusations to damages that may have been inflicted.
Attorneys for the companies and their CEO have denied any wrongdoing in the matter.
The Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys with Norris Injury Lawyers are aware of how traumatic experiencing sexual harassment in the workplace can be. That is why the firm is hopeful a decision in the case will bring the victim a sense of closure.
