Carter Law Offices represents worker in sexual harassment lawsuit against Eddie V’s Prime Seafood

A lawsuit filed in Jackson County Circuit Court has brought serious allegations against Eddie V’s Prime Seafood in Kansas City, where a 23-year-old female employee claims she was sexually harassed and assaulted. Represented by Douglas Carter of Carter Law Offices, the plaintiff asserts that a senior-level co-worker and the restaurant’s corporate management subjected her to sexual discrimination, harassment, retaliation, violation of Missouri’s minimum wage law, as well as common law assault and battery. According to her account, after rebuffing the co-worker’s unwanted advances, she endured escalating hostility, including verbal abuse, threats, and physical confrontations. Reports to management yielded no meaningful response, ultimately forcing her resignation due to the untenable conditions.
