WINFIELD - A former employee is suing Alpha Technologies after she claims she was sexually harassed by another employee.
Ron Deeds, an employee of Alpha, was also named as a defendant in the suit.
Heather Lang was employed by Alpha as an account executive from April 1, 2011, until July 6, 2012, according to a complaint filed July 3 in Putnam Circuit Court.
Lang claims during her employment with Alpha, it fostered a hostile work environment and allowed a hostile work environment to exist, including acts of sexual harassment by Alpha's male employees toward female employees.
During Lang's employment, Deeds began sexually harassing her at work, according to the suit.
Lang claims when she complained to Alpha about the wrongful and unwelcome conduct, Alpha took no action whatsoever to correct the situation.
Because of her complaints about sexual harassment, Lang's employment was wrongfully terminated by Alpha, according to the suit.
Lang is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Robert H. Miller II and Shawn R. Romano of Romano & Associates PLLC.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Phillip Stowers.
