The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (PHRC) has ordered Plum Entertainment, a New Hope theater production company, to pay $162,000 to Sharon Sheridan, a former personal assistant who claimed she was fired for complaining about sexual harassment.
Sheridan joined Plum Entertainment in 2004 as a personal assistant to the company's president, Carl Cutts. Sheridan claimed that Cutts made sexual advances toward her, behaved jealously when he thought other men were interested in her and moved too close to her on several occasions.
She sought treatment for stress in November 2004 and filed a PHRC complaint in 2005.
The award included back pay of $95,000 plus interest and front pay through April 2010. The PHRC also ordered Plum Entertainment to develop anti-discrimination policies and procedures.
