Waitress accuses former supervisor of sexual harassment

By Robert Hadley | May 9, 2016

CHARLESTON – A Kanawha County woman says her supervisor at the restaurant where she worked allegedly fired her for resisting his unwanted sexual advances.

Amanda Mace filed a lawsuit April 7 in Kanawha Circuit Court against DEM 2 Brothers & A Grill LLC and supervisor Bobby Wilds, alleging sexual harassment and retaliatory discharge.

According to the complaint, Mace worked for the defendant’s barbecue restaurant in Charleston, where she was subjected to lewd comments, sexual solicitation and inappropriate touching by Wilds. The suit claims Wilds offered Mace more hours and better shifts in exchange for sexual favors. When she refused, Mace says she was terminated.

Mace seeks a jury trial, reimbursement for lost wages, compensation for mental anguish and other damages to be determined at trial. She is represented by attorneys Maria W. Hughes and Mark Goldner of Hughes & Goldner PLLC in Charleston.

Judge James C. Stucky is assigned to the case.
