DALLAS (PRWEB) November 02, 2022
A manager at a Fuzzy’s Taco in Little Elm is alleged to have fired a bartender for refusing his sexual advances, according to a lawsuit filed in Dallas County District Court.
The lawsuit, Erin Norman v. Fuzzy’s Taco Holdings, LLC, et al. No DC-22-15062 in Dallas’ 68th District Court, alleges that Earnest Wayne Ashburn, who held himself out as the Front of House General Manager at Fuzzy’s on W. Eldorado Parkway in Little Elm, had hired Erin Norman in late 2020 for a bartending position. The lawsuit claims that Ashburn terminated Norman before she could start the job because she asked him to stop sending her sexually explicit text messages and images.

Fuzzy’s allegedly terminated Norman on the basis of her sex and in retaliation for refusing to acquiesce to Ashburn’s sexual advances, says Norman’s attorney, Jennifer Spencer, of Dallas’ Jackson Spencer Law.
“It’s sadly not uncommon for employees to be subjected to this kind of harassment on the job,” Spencer says. “We are asking not only for Fuzzy’s to make our client whole, but we’re also seeking a change in corporate policy that would protect future employees from this kind of harassment.”
