Former Huddle House Waitress Files Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against D’Argent Companies

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) – A former employee of the Huddle House restaurant in Alexandria has filed a federal lawsuit alleging sexual harassment against an executive with D’Argent Companies, which owns the restaurant.

Samantha Williams, a former waitress for the restaurant, filed a lawsuit back on Jan. 6 against D’Argent Franchising, LLC, D’Argent Construction, LLC, D’Argent Companies, LLC, Justin Giallonardo, and their insurance companies.

Williams worked at the restaurant from April of 2019 to August of 2020 when she resigned.

In the lawsuit, Williams claims that Giallonardo engaged in a pattern of sexual harassment which includes making requests for dates, inappropriate nicknames, text messages, sexual advances, and threats to keep the communications secret.

The lawsuit states that Giallonardo repeatedly invited Williams to his home. In one instance, Giallonardo allegedly tricked Williams into coming to his house for a barbeque for prospective managers, only for Williams to show up and find that no one else was invited. And Giallonardo attempted to engage in sexual interaction with Williams but she declined.
