HARRISBURG — A former police officer is suing Lock Haven University for allegedly subjecting her to sexual harassment and a hostile work environment.
Jane Doe filed a complaint on April 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendant violated the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was forced to resign from her position because she was unable to tolerate the alleged behavior of her immediate supervisor. As a result, she claims that she has suffered emotional, psychological and financial damages. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly discriminating against her by subjecting her to unwanted sexual advances and a hostile work environment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual, compensatory and punitive damages; litigation costs; expenses and fees; and any other relief that the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Douglas N. Engelman of Lepley, Engelman & Yaw LLC in Williamsport.
