A man is suing his former employer over allegations of sexual harassment and wrongful termination.
Cedric Harmon filed a lawsuit on Sept. 14 in Madison County Circuit Court against Trouw Nutrition USA LLC, Jeff Hornberger and Luke Isringhuasen, citing a hostile work environment, sexual harassment and wrongful termination.
Harmon claims that during his employment for Trouw Nutrition, he was subjected to continual sexual harassment from Hornberger in the form of touching, inappropriate remarks and comments, and humiliation which resulted in a hostile environment. During this time, Harmon claims to have reported this misconduct to Isringhausen, the supervisor at the time. Harmon claims that Isringhausen and Trouw Nutrition failed to take the steps necessary to reprimand Hornberger and, as retailiation, terminated plaintiff’s employment with the company on or about July 14, 2014.
Harmon is requesting a trail by jury and is suing for more than $50,000 for damages, court costs, and other such relief the court deems just. He is represented by attorney Michael J. Brunton and Mary M. Stewart of Brunton Law Offices P.C. in Collinsville.
