Ex Wells Fargo worker says boss asked her to cook for him naked
Together we'll go far — but not that far!
An ex mortgage loan processor for Wells Fargo is suing the company, alleging that she was sexually harassed by her manager.
In court documents, Jessica Nibert of Mecklenburg County, N.C., stated that her supervisor, Robert Courtwright, began making sexual advances toward her almost immediately after she was hired.
She alleges in the filing that Courtwright questioned whether she'd be interested in making more money outside her day job by cooking him dinner in the nude.
Nibert claims that Courtwright was not secretive about his harassment. She alleged in the court documents that he said he intentionally put her cubicle next to his so he could "see her a- and legs all day."
Courtwright also reportedly told Nibert she had a "nice butt."
Court documents obtained by the Daily News show that Nibert attempted to deal with the harassment internally, before suing the company. She went to a Senior Loan Administration Manager in 2012 about Courtwright's advances and was told, "oh, that's just Bob."
Nibert was instructed to ignore the harassment, according to the documents.

The harassment continued, carrying into 2014 when Courtwright made a pass at Nibert at the funeral for her infant daughter.
He reportedly told her she looked "hot," adding that he "couldn't tell she just had a baby."
According to her legal filing, when she returned to work Nibert was asked to wear skirts or dresses to work as well as "sexy jeans" on days when such dress was allowed.
Courtwright reportedly offered to "sneak her into a storage room" to engaged in sexual activity with Nibert.
She claims the harassment continued outside of work, where Courtwright would call her at odd hours to find out whether she was in the shower because he "loved thinking of her naked."
Nibert claims Courtwright's advances are to blame for the deterioration of her marriage. Her husband repeatedly encouraged her to go to human resources about the harassment, but she refrained because of her previous experience with upper management.
Additionally, she feared she'd be terminated if she took action against Courtwright.
In April 2016, Nibert went out on disability. In May of that same year she spoke with Courtwright about her return.
He responded via text, according to court documents, advising her to start looking for another job.
She returned to work on May 12, 2016, at which time Nibert claims Courtwright had begun treating her negatively because of her refusal to feed into his advances.
She went to human resources about her complaints only to learn that she was under investigation for her method of recording Family and Medical Leave Act time off from work.
According to court documents, Nibert was fired on Aug. 22, 2016.
She is suing and hopes that she'll be awarded her job back as well as an unspecified amount of money to account for the "emotional distress" she suffered under Courtwright.
Wells Fargo released a statement to the Charlotte Observer in which they stated that they had "only just begun to review this new lawsuit and can't comment specifically about the claims related to this former team member."
"We strive for a culture where people matter, teamwork is rewarded, everyone feels respected and empowered to speak up, and diversity and inclusion are embraced," said Tom Goyda, Wells Fargo senior vice president of consumer lending communications.
