Shell Gas Station manager Sebastian Joseph accused of sexual harassment

On January 21, 2014 a former 22-year old female cashier at a Shell Gas Station in Chicago filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against her employer, MBS Petroleum D/B/A Shell Gas Station.

The employee claims that she “was subjected to unwelcome, offensive and harassing sexually discriminatory conduct during her employment with defendant which was perpetrated upon her by defendant’s employee and her supervisor, Sebastian Joseph.”

The woman, who filed a sex discrimination complaint with the EEOC and with the Illinois Department of Human Rights in August 2012, received a right to sue letter from the EEOC on October 22, 2013.

The employee claims that her boss, Sebastian Joseph, who was the gas station manager, sexually harassed her “on numerous occasions between May 14, 2011 and May 2, 2012…by grabbing her breasts and/or buttocks.”

According to the complaint, “This sexually harassing and discriminatory conduct was sufficiently severe and pervasive so as to unreasonably interfere with plaintiff’s physical and mental health and with her work performance and so as to create an intimidating, hostile, and offensive work environment.”

The woman called the Chicago police on May 2, 2012 and reported Sebastian Joseph’s alleged behavior.  According to the complaint, Joseph was subsequently arrested and charged with battery.
