Attorneys at Stoltmann Law Offices are investigating sexual harassment claims against brokerage firms such as Wells Fargo. A former Wells Fargo broker claimed sexual harassment against the firm in a lawsuit that points the finger at colleagues and manager. Laurie A. McNally filed a complaint in federal court in the eastern district of Pennsylvania, alleging that Wells Fargo allowed her to be subject to lewd comments from colleagues and managers, lower pay than comparable male producers, and retaliation for reporting fraudulent practices at three Philadelphia-area branches where she worked. She also alleged that she was given far less administrative support than her male counterparts. She alleged that she was told by a regional manager, “we only hire hot women and you qualify,” and that other male employees told her she should be wearing thigh-high stockings because it was “thigh-high Thursday,” to “lift up her shirt” for one employee, and suggested they have carnal relations “one time before I die of cancer.” It also asserts that the branch manager, David Lucy, suggested that she “had to do something to get something.”
In a separate occurrence, a former Wells Fargo broker Jessica Nibert, stated that her supervisor, Robert Courtwright began making sexual advances toward her almost immediately after she was hired by the firm. She alleged that Courtwright questioned whether she would like to make more money outside the firm by cooking him dinner in the nude. He also allegedly and intentionally put her cubicle next to his so he could see her “ass and legs all day.” He told her she had a “nice butt,” and made a pass at her at her infant’s funeral, telling her she looked “hot,” and that he couldn’t tell she had “just had a baby.” He then allegedly called her at odd hours at home to find out whether she was in the shower because he “loved thinking of her naked.” Nibert claims it led to the deterioration of her marriage because she was hesitant to go to human resources, thinking she would be terminated if she took action against him.
