SHERMAN — A Grayson County man is suing a manufacturing business, alleging he was subjected to sexual harassment on a regular basis.
Garvie Setzer filed a complaint April 12 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas against ACS Manufacturing Inc., alleging unlawful employment practices.
According to the complaint, Setzer worked for ACS for three months as a mechanical technician, and during his employment he was subjected to uncivilized sexual harassment. The plaintiff says he reported the behavior to a supervisor but nothing was done.
The suit alleges Jeff White made sexually explicit statements and questions to the plaintiff and regularly made
Setzer feel uncomfortable and unsafe in his presence. The lawsuit says White once asked, "How do you know you're not gay if you've never tried it." The plaintiff says he resigned Sept. 15, 2017, and was constructively discharged.
Setzer seeks trial by jury, actual damages, liquidated damages, attorney fees, court costs and all just relief. He is represented by attorney Ronald R. Huff of Sherman.
