The eBossWatch has a new search tool for obtaining information about people who have been accused of sexual harassment in the workplace. Personally, I think it is a good idea, but what are you going to do with this information?

An investigator has concluded that a former West Covina Unified superintendent’s claims of discrimination, retaliation and sexual harassment are “without merit,” district officials said this week.
Liliam Leis-Castillo, who was hired as West Covina Unified superintendent in 2006, filed suit against the district and board members Mike Spence and Steve Cox in August, following her termination by a board vote in May.

Nothing unusual there, except that Janet was an autoworker for Chrysler and Pat is a union official for the United Auto Workers. Correction: We should say “was a worker,” because after their relationship ended, Burney alleges she was fired… and now she’s suing for unfair termination.
