Woman Spanked At Work Gets $500K

FRESNO, California, April 28, 2006

(AP) A jury Friday awarded $500,000 to a woman who sued her employer after she was spanked in front of her colleagues in what the company called a camaraderie-building exercise.

The jury of six men and six women found that Janet Orlando suffered from sexual harassment and sexual battery when she was spanked two years ago at Alarm One Inc., a home security company in Fresno.

The jurors, however, said that Orlando did not suffer from sexual assault as she had alleged.

Orlando, 53, had asked the jury for at least $1.2 million in lost wages, medical costs and damages.

Although it was the best-paying job she'd ever had, Orlando quit in 2004, less than a year after she was hired, saying she couldn't bear the humiliation of the company's camaraderie-building exercises.

Sales teams were encouraged to compete, and the losers were made fun of, forced to eat baby food, wear diapers, or get spanked on the buttocks with an opposing company's metal-poled yard signs, according to court documents.

Lawyers for the company said Orlando and others took part in the exercises willingly. The practice stopped in 2004, when Orlando sued and another employee said she'd been hurt.

I agree with you. What were those people thinking? What a waste of company time. You would think that companies would get it by now, but I guess they don't.

People can be such freaks (if you will) sometimes, and things like this are disgusting and wrong.
