A former worker of Tyson Foods has claimed in a lawsuit filed by his sexual harassment attorney that he was subjected to rampant sexual harassment and discrimination from his immediate supervisors at his workplace. According to Sioux City Journal, the lawsuit alleges that a supervisor at the meat packaging company would loudly comment about homosexuals.

These comments were always derogatory, and he would ensure that the plaintiff was within ear shot when he made such remarks.

The complainant in the case is Cory West who was employed in Tyson Foods Storm Lake, Iowa plant as an edible rendering operator. The defendants listed in the case are Tyson Foods (the company) and more specifically, another worker of Tyson Foods, Rick Lipai. The allegations outlined in the lawsuit include that Lipai would not only call West demeaning names which essentially insinuated that he was a dirty homosexual but he also vandalized West’s equipment, locker door, etc.

The reason West has named his former employers as a defendant in the lawsuit is because they allegedly condoned Lipai’s behavior towards west. Furthermore, when West approached Human Resources and complained about the harassment, he was threatened that he will lose his job if he pursues the complaint. West is seeking damages stemming from alleged harassment, discrimination and retaliation such as loss of pay, mental anguish, pain and suffering etc.

 

A spokesperson for the company made a comment clarifying that the company had a strict zero tolerance policy towards sexual harassment and discrimination and that they even held annual counselling and training seminars to reiterate their standpoint on such issues. He also said that they had not received any notice of the lawsuit as of yet.
