BILLINGS — Two former employees of the Miles City branch of Stockman Bank have filed a lawsuit alleging sexual discrimination by their supervisors.
Cindy Conley of Miles City and Tracee Burchell of Castle Rock, Colorado, filed a federal complaint alleging their supervisors subjected them to a pattern of unwelcome, inappropriate and offensive conduct of a sexual nature.
Stockman Bank's attorney, Jeanne Bender, says the women filed complaints with the Montana Human Rights Bureau last year, which found no reason to believe discrimination had taken place. She said the bank hadn't been served with the lawsuit, which was filed on July 2.
The women say they have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and their doctors have not cleared them to return to work.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
