BATON ROUGE – A Pointe Coupee man alleges he had to resign from his job because of the unwanted conduct of his supervisor.
Keven Kline filed a complaint on Dec. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana against Combustion Emissions Reduction Technologies LLC, CERT Operations IV LLC and Darryl Juneau
alleging assault, battery and sexual battery, discrimination, hostile work environment and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 29, 2015, he could no longer take the pervasive physical and emotional abuse from defendant Juneau and resigned his position with defendant CERT. Since then, the suit states he was forced to obtain employment with a significantly less wage and benefits. The plaintiff holds Combustion Emissions Reduction Technologies LLC, CERT Operations IV LLC and Juneau responsible because during his employment with defendant CERT, defendant Juneau allegedly subjected him to extensive, continuous and pervasive pattern of sexual and offensive harassment even in the presence of his co-workers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for compensatory and punitive damages, costs, attorney fees and interest and all other justifiable relief available. He is represented by Seth M. Dornier of Dornier Law Firm LLC in Baton Rouge and Charlotte McDaniel-McGehee, also of Baton Rouge.
