Harassment

From the Southern Utah News, Jan 28, 2009, pp 14

Attention

If you have been wrongfully terminated or experienced sexual harassment while employed at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, contact Robb Richmond for litigation. PO Box 401, Kanab UT 84741

The suit was brought by two former emplyees of BF. Robb’s a former caregiver who was fired with no reason. He later found out there were sexual harassment accusations against him. He was also both shunned and directly harassed by BF employees after leaving. He has since been thrown out of his apartment and is living in a camper (a BF director owned the apartments). Word is their charges were acknowledged by the EOC and a federal case has been opened on this.

Update – Months later

As is often the case, he gave up and left Kanab. It seems a number of others were fired for the same reason (an epidemic?), but they weren’t willing to fight back. Considering their low salaries, no other work in Kanab and the threat of being blacklisted, it’s understandable.
