Lawsuit Former Bonneville Hot Springs Resort employee alleges sexual harassment

first_imgA former Bonneville Hot Springs Resort massage therapist says the resort’s former owner sexually harassed her and at least a dozen women at that resort and Carson Hot Springs Resort, LLC, according to a lawsuit filed in Skamania County Circuit Court.Former Bonneville owner Purfil “Pete” Cam initiated “unwanted touching, embracing and fondling” of massage therapist Holly Nelson, including “pushing up against her and rubbing his clothed erect penis on her backside,” says Nelson’s lawsuit.Nelson left her job at Bonneville as a massage therapist in early 2016 because of Cam’s alleged harassment, says the lawsuit, which also accuses General Manager Marfa Scheratski of not stopping the alleged behavior.Cam and Scheratski co-owned Bonneville Hot Springs Resort, Inc. and Carson Hot Springs Resort, LLC, the lawsuit says. Bonneville Hot Springs, it says, was sold in fall 2016 shortly after its owners learned of Nelson’s allegations “as a means to avoid corporate liability, transferring all or a substantial portion of the profits of the sale to themselves individually” and to Carson Hot Springs Resort.No dollar amount is listed in the lawsuit, filed Wednesday. Nelson, who began work at the resort in 2012, is seeking damages for emotional distress, lost wages and attorneys’ fees, and for assault and battery.last_img
