Kimberly K. Campbell-Johnson, a former truck driver at the Black Castle surface mine (Spartan Mining Co.) in Uneeda, West Virginia, has filed a sex discrimination lawsuit against her former employer.
Campbell-Johnson claims that she “was subjected to severe and pervasive sexual harassment by the defendant, which included unwanted, unwelcome and unsolicited verbal and physical conduct by agents of defendants.”
The complaint states that her former boss, Larry Higgins, and others “repeatedly made grotesque and vile, graphic and sexual comments to plaintiff, including … statements about her breasts over the CB and directly to her, … assertions by a Spartan supervisor that he was having a wet t-shirt contest and a request for her to compete, and … after showing plaintiff a picture of a man with an erection, defendants’ agent asked plaintiff, ‘is that big enough for you?'”
Campbell-Johnson was terminated in February 2009 allegedly in retaliation for complaining about the sexual harassment and attempting to file for workers’ compenstation and temporary disability.
