A Woods Cross woman has filed a sex discrimination lawsuit against ANR Freight System Inc. in U.S. District Court.
ANR's regional manager, John Yeates, declined to comment on the case.The suit filed by Kathy Eby claims she was repeatedly verbally and physically harassed by a supervisor, Mickey L. Beckstead, while working as an on-call employee at the company's Salt Lake terminal. The suit says Beckstead grabbed, rubbed, pinched, patted and otherwise touched her in addition to making unwelcome sexual remarks.
The suit says Eby informed ANR officials of the harassment, and the personnel director met with her and promised to stop the problem if she would refrain from filing a claim.
But Eby says that after this meeting, the company stopped calling her in to work. Her suit alleges constructive termination as well as discrimination, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
