Recently El Dorado County (CA) Employees have begun to speak up about a culture of bullying. The most impressive example comes from Mike Applegarth, who does a great job making the business case and calling for workers to be protected.
The Board of Supervisors seem prepared to act and have an obvious respect for Mr. Applegarth. It becomes more difficult since the main perpetrator, Auditor Controller Joe Harn, is an elected official, making him seemingly immune from normal employee evaluation or punishment. The possibiity of public censure was raised by the board, as well as a county legal expert.
One thing is clear, employees in El Dorado County have been suffering for too long and things need to change.
