Landmen group lobbyist files sexual harassment lawsuit against senior executive
A female employee who works as a Governmental Affairs Liaison for the American Association of Landmen group has recently filed a legal sexual harassment complaint against one of the top executives at the firm.
According to a report in the Star Telegram, the lawsuit claims that Executive Vice President Marty Schardt is guilty of sexual harassment and has been named as the sole defendant in the case. The plaintiff and the alleged victim, Holly Carless has accused Schardt of inappropriately touching her on more than one occasion. Carless claims the harassment lasted for almost a whole year. Her sexual harassment attorney has confirmed that she has even filed a formal complaint against Schardt with the Texas Workforce Commision.
Carless supposedly worked under Schardt, she monitored legislative and regulatory issues that affected landmen. The lawsuit seeks damages of at least $1 million. Schardt has refused to comment on the lawsuit.
$1 million for touching? That is illogical. Schardt should be fired though and Carless should receive some compensation though if this actually occurred.
Accusations against Executive Vice President of landmen group
The lawsuit describes two occasions on which Schardt behaved completely inappropriately. In the first instance, the lawsuit claims that Schardt had grabbed the victim’s leg above the knee and started to caress it while they were together discussing her salary. Apparently, he had told her that she would receive a bonus if she went with him to a hotel room.
Secondly, Schardt has also been accused of approaching Carless from the back and putting his arms around her while she was stood at a photocopy machine. Once again, he had urged her to go with him to a hotel room and told her that she looked hot.
The lawsuit also states that Carless and other employees of Landmen had discovered that Schardt was watching pornography on a company computer. This says plenty about his character and lack of self-control in the workplace.
According to her sexual harassment attorney, Carless was hesitant to file the lawsuit as she did not want to taint the image and reputation of the company. According to the lawsuit, she filed a complaint with the company first and requested for an internal investigation which yielded no findings. It was only after this that Carless unwillingly lodged the sexual harassment lawsuit.
