BELLEVILLE — A Madison County woman is suing a lawn care business, alleging sexual harassment.
Lindsey M. Williams filed a lawsuit June 24 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Michael Joe Little of O'Fallon and Triple Take Lawn Care Company, doing business as Tee Time Lawn Care Services, alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual harassment in violating her civil rights and the applicable provisions of the Illinois Human Rights Act.
According to the complaint, throughout Williams' employment with Tee Time from November 2014 to April 2015, she was subjected to, and victimized by a campaign of sexual harassment and sexual assault, causing her to suffer emotional distress, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, vomiting, sleeplessness, fearfulness, and loss of employment.
The plaintiff alleges Little engaged her in repeated acts of sexual harassment, sexual assault and battery and created a hostile work environment.
Williams seeks a trial by jury, compensatory damages of at least $50,000, exemplary and punitive damages, attorney fees and legal costs and such other relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorney Wayne D. Skigen of Lucco, Brown, Threlkeld & Dawson LLP in Edwardsville.
