Former CLEAR CHANNEL OMAHA GSM JEAN KAECHELE is suing the company for sexual harassment, reports the OMAHA WORLD-HERALD.
KAECHELE's suit, filed SEPTEMBER 16th, alleges, according to the paper, "that her boss (TAYLOR WALET III) made vulgar references and spoke about genitalia, having sex with various women and other inappropriate topics."
Among the specific allegations is that WALET, after KAECHELE asked to turn up the thermostat, said, "Oh yeah, I can see it's nipply in here." KAECHELE also alleges that the harassment began in SEPTEMBER 2007 when WALET hired a friend and the two, according to KAECHELE, encouraged each other. She was fired in the company-wide layoffs of 2009 and now seeks reinstatement, back pay, lawyer's fees, punitive damages, and a ban on retaliation or discrimination against her.
WALET declined comment to CLEAR CHANNEL, and EVP WENDY GOLDBERG told the paper that "as a matter of policy, we do not comment on litigation or personnel matters."
