Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against Starbucks

Below is the state court complaint recently filed by Emily Feliciano against Starbucks and assistant manager Anthony Nunez.

Among other things, plaintiff alleges that Nunez sexually harassed plaintiff verbally (such as by making an obscene observation that she was “wet”, telling her to call him “daddy”, and demanding sex) and physically (such as by trapping her in a stairway, rubbing against her, and assaulting her).

She also alleges that after she complained to Starbucks’s management about Nunez’s conduct, the company failed to take any disciplinary action against him.

She asserts claims for quid pro quo and hostile environment sexual harassment (under the New York State and New York City Human Rights Laws), false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault and battery.
