Tiger Woods is accused of sexual harassment by ex-girlfriend Erica Herman, who claims the 15-time grand prizewinner ‘forced her to sign a non-disclosure agreement or get fired’

Tiger Woods’ ex-girlfriend, Erica Herman, has accused him of sexual harassment.

Herman, who dated the 15-time grand winner for nearly six years, filed the document late Friday through her attorney, Benjamin Hobas in Martin County, Florida.

In the filing, Herman, who is suing the PGA Tour star for $30 million, alleged that Woods pursued a sexual relationship with her while she was his employee at his South Florida restaurant and forced her to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

In the document obtained by DailyMail.com, Herman’s attorney, Benjamin Hodas, wrote, “Mr. Woods was Mrs. Herman’s boss.

“Based on Mr. Woods’ own account of events, he put a non-disclosure agreement on her as a condition of keeping her job when she began having a sexual relationship with him. A boss who imposes different employment conditions on his employee because of their sexual relationship is sexual harassment.’

Hodas’s document added: “Tiger Woods, the internationally renowned athlete and one of the most powerful figures in global sport, decided to engage in a sexual relationship with his employee and then – according to him – forced her to sign a non-disclosure agreement. to sign. or else get fired from her job.

And when he became dissatisfied with their sexual relationship, he tricked her into leaving her home, locked her out, took her money, pets, and personal belongings, and attempted to forcibly arm her to sign another NDA. ‘

Herman, who worked at his restaurant The Woods Jupiter, filed a lawsuit in October against the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust, the legal owner of his mansion in Hobe Sound, where the two lived together.

Herman is suing the trust she claims is managed by Woods, 47, for $30 million claiming that he tricked her into getting the Florida mansion where they lived together for six years after their October breakup.

She claimed she had a verbal agreement with Woods’ trust – the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust – who is the legal owner of his mansion in Hobe Sound where the two lived together, allowing her to live in the property for 11 years.

The latest filing in her lawsuit against Woods personally describes more of Herman’s version of events leading up to the breakup.

“The landlord made the availability of her home a condition that she had a sexual relationship with a co-tenant,” the document said.

“That conduct constitutes sexual harassment under federal and Florida fair housing laws.

“The brief summary of the events here and the fact that the defendant itself relates the alleged agreement to his sexual motivations in both her employment and housing are sufficient to bring this case within the scope of the Ending Forced Arbitration Act.”
