CHARLESTON -- A former employee is suing Blizzard Custom Cycle Supply after she claims she was sexually harassed by the CEO of the company.
Beverly Eikler was employed by the defendant from May 13, 2010, until May 27, 2010, as an office assistant, according to a complaint filed May 19 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Eikler claims Ron Blizzard, the CEO of the company, subjected her to sexual harassment and created a hostile work environment.
On multiple occasions Blizzard would touch Eikler and made sexually suggestive comments, according to the suit.
Eikler claims Blizzard Custom Cycle Supply failed to correct the sexually harassing environment.
Due to the continued and constant sexual harassment and lack of action by the defendant, Eikler found the environment to be so hostile and intolerable that she was forced to leave the employment, according to the suit.
Eikler is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. She is being represented by Paul K. Reese.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Charles E. King.
