In 2010, Premier Adjusters Inc. and Jerry Wilson, president of Premier Adjusters Inc., were slapped with a lawsuit by three female employees, who allege that Wilson sexually harassed them. Specifically, they claim he emailed them photos of his penis, forced them to watch a pornographic video of a woman having sex with a pig, then sent them emails depicting a scantily clad woman with pig ears and snout titled, “Swine Flu After Effects … Carful.” He also exposed himself to the women on at least one occasion, asking if they preferred, “A big old gooden, or a good ole biggen.” According to the plaintiff’s attorney there’s more, but we will have to wait for the trial to find out.
The plaintiffs allege that the company did nothing about Wilson’s behavior, and that they “have suffered, and continue to suffer extreme and severe emotional distress, including but not limited to nausea, sleeplessness, night terrors, loss of sexual desire, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.” What may seem to the untrained as an open-and-shut case is, in fact, not. It turns out that according to Texas Labor Law, the plaintiffs must prove that having this guy as a boss made them physically ill — and document that medically. The woman who originally complained, Beth Parchman, has been dropped from the suit for failing to file medical records on the case. She believes that her attorney, who told her that she didn’t need them, and is now dropping her, was bribed by Wilson. The attorney, who says he hasn’t made a penny, is looking forward to the proceedings, which are set for November, “It’s going to be a fun one,” he said.
