WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A Wichita Falls business owner is being sued by a former employee who claims they were sexually harassed by the business owner. 

According to legal documents, Clayton Baxter was employed as a Marketing Manager for Jody Wade Enterprises, LLC from October 24, 2016, to February 8, 2017. 

The lawsuit alleges that during that time period, on multiple occasions, Jody Wade sexually harassed and preyed upon Clayton Baxter. 
It also states that Wade knew that Baxter was in a vulnerable employment situation because he was a felon. 

During Baxter's employment, he alleges on several occasions Wade made inappropriate comments, physically touched him inappropriately, and other sexually harassing remarks along with physical advances. Baxter claims in the lawsuit that he sternly declined Wade's alleged advances.

These incidents are said to have occurred in Wichita Falls, Dallas, New York City and Las Vegas. 
The documents state that ultimately Wade fired Baxter in retaliation of Baxter's refusal to participate in a sexual relationship with Wade.  

Baxter is suing for damages up to $1,000,000. 
Newschannel 6 reached out to Jody Wade Enterprise, LLC for comment Friday. Below is what we were sent in an email. 

"This is a felon who lied about his background and extorted over a half million dollars from innocent citizens and was released from prison late last year.  The case is exaggerated and the statements listed in the complaint are untrue.  Baxter has a $500,000 judgment against him by the FBI and would not be entitled to any funds. We will litigate this case to the end where the real facts will be shown. Wade is being represented by the high-powered 161 attorney law firm Kelly and Hart out of Fort Worth."
