Lawsuit Alleges Owner of Sunrise, Florida Courier Business Sexually Assaulted Female Employee

A new lawsuit filed by Farmer Jaffe sexual abuse attorney Adam Horowitz alleges that the owner and president of Direct Messenger Service, Jeffrey Bass, sexually assaulted a female employee on multiple occasions during her brief employment with the company in January 2016.  Direct Messenger Service is a courier company based in Sunrise, Florida.

According to the lawsuit filed in Broward County Circuit Court, the alleged victim responded to a Craigslist advertisement stating that a “Long established, Very Elite and well-known Courier Company in Sunrise has a rare Full-Time opening for an Administrative Assistant/ General Office person.”   The Complaint alleges that the alleged victim was hired by the company’s owner (Bass), who quickly began making unwanted sexual contact with the employee, including touching her breasts and buttocks.  In addition, the lawsuit contends that Jeffrey Bass demanded sexual favors which the claimant refused.

The lawsuit also alleges that Bass maintained a private room with a bed at Direct Messenger Service, where he often required the employee to perform her job duties. While in the bedroom, Bass allegedly removed all his clothing, masturbated in the employee’s presence and required her to massage him as part of her job.  The employee stopped coming to work at Direct Messenger Service after less than four days of employment according to the lawsuit.
