On June 10, 2015 two former employees filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against a West Virginia Five Guys burger restaurant and their former bosses.
The women claim that they were subjected to a sexually hostile work environment at the Teays Valley Five Guys location that included unwelcome sexual advances and requests for sexual favors.
Local Five Guys general manager Curtis Runyon and manager Andre Devon “Dre” Fleming were also named as defendants in the lawsuit.
According to the complaint, Fleming told an 18-year-old employee that he wanted to “get her high and go star gazing with her and have sex.” Fleming allegedly stalked the teenage employee, called her a “sexy bitch” and told her to “bend over and I’ll make you forget about your boyfriend.”
Another female former employee claims that Fleming made sexually inappropriate comments to her and to other female employees. Fleming allegedly called her “Big booty Brit” and grabbed her and allowed a coworker named Aaron Kitchen to sexually harass her and to grab her.
The two women claim that Runyon did not take action to reprimand Fleming and that Five Guys did not take action to stop the alleged sexual harassment.
