I cannot imagine what this lady went through, she said she was “SLAPPED”? WHAT?? That is totally unacceptable and the police should have been called and the person that slapped her should have faced assault charges.

This seems like a woman who is trying to get more than they deserve. The lower courts already noted that the company took actions on their own accord to solve the problem and the “abuser” has no control over this woman’s job. Typical social engineering by the left on this one.

America is far, far too lax with management and supervision. Often workplaces are terrorized by supervisors who behave like petty tyrants without any check from their own supervisors. Time for the legal impunity of these s.o.b supervisors to stop.

The real problem is their own bosses, but then given the total lack of US corporate governance law that is not surprising.

You know using the words white trash is the equivalent of n*****. Nothing spells progressive quite like a self-righteous, white hating, racist.

If refusing an order from a person can result in an insubordination reprimand, that person is a supervisor, regardless of who actually issues the reprimand.

The university does not deny that the incidents occurred. Only that Davis doesn’t fit the legal definition of ‘supervisor’.
