Julie Frederick and Ward Frederick, a married couple who own the Oregon-based Markum Inn, have been accused of sexual harassment by Jessica Webber, a former waitress who worked at Markum Inn from 2006 to 2009.
Webber filed a lawsuit against Markum Inn earlier this month in which she claims that Julie Frederick talked about her sexual fantasies with employees and asked them for sexual advice and suggestions on several occassions.
In addition, Webber claims that Julie and Ward Frederick threw a private party at the Markum Inn for female employees, customers, and friends. According to the complaint, Ward Frederick “began stripping off his clothes, and stripped down to thong underwear, and began walking around the restaurant and bar area. He also gave lap dances to employees and guests. A few minutes later, Mr. Frederick removed his thong, and became completely nude. Mrs. Frederick began asking the guests and employees to guess the measurements of Mr. Frederick’s penis and asked employees to rub lotion on Mr. Frederick. Mr. Frederick then began masturbating in front of the guest and employees so the measurements of his erect penis could be taken, and so others could play a ring toss game on his penis.”
