Steven Erickson, a former employee at Mark’s Motors Inc in Brattleboro, Vermont has given detailed allegations on his blog of the male on male sexual harassment that his former boss, Mark Lanoue, inflicted on him.
Erickson writes that he is “looking to sue Mark Lanoue for $250,000 for wages garnished, withheld, and/or stolen without my permission, for damages, for male on male sexual harassment, and for the hostile working environment.”
In his blog, which also contains videos and pictures that he recorded to prove his allegations, Erickson gives the following graphic and disturbing account of some of the abuse that he allegedly endured at Mark’s Motors:
“Mark Lanoue has grabbed my buttocks…and had even tried to grab my genitals in front of other Marks Motors Inc employees. There probably isn’t a male, or female, Marks Motors employee or salesperson who either hasn’t been spoken to inappropriately, or has not been groped or otherwise abused witnessed the mostly male on male sexual harrasment.”
We commend Steven Erickson for his courage to openly and publicly discuss the workplace bullying that he experienced.
