CLAYTON, Mo. – AdOne Media and its CEO James Neuman must pay $1.1 million to a former employee for sexual harassment and retaliatory firing. A St. Louis County jury awarded the money to Sherry Flotron, a sales rep for AdOne from December 2004 to April 2005.
Flotron claimed Neuman sexually harassed her on multiple occasions and fired her after she fended off his advances.
Neuman testified that he fired Flotron because she didn’t bring in advertisers.
The jury awarded Flotron $255,000 in actual damages and found against AdOne for $150,000 and against Neuman personally for $701,000 in punitive damages.
AdOne specializes in outdoor advertising on billboards and buses.
