In January 2017, Van Dermyden Maddux Law Corporation began an investigation into a November 2016 complaint alleging that a respondent sexually harassed a woman over an eight-year period. The respondent allegedly made inappropriate comments about women, massaged several female employees’ necks and shoulders, asked the complainant to help him with personal projects and withheld assistance if the complainant did not comply with his requests. The respondent acknowledged that he applied “momentary, light pressure” to female employees’ shoulders but denied doing so with ill intent. Additionally, the respondent denied forcing the complainant to assist him with personal projects, according to the report.
Complaint date: Nov. 15, 2016
