News of sexual harassment at work is continuing to follow Donald Trump as one of his employees was fired after allegedly complaining of being sexually harassed.
Erin Breen, a former supervisor at the Trump National Golf Course in Jupiter, Florida, was apparently fired after she claimed a former co-worker made unwanted sexual advances to her for months, the Daily Mail reported.
Breen filed a lawsuit against the golf course and her former co-worker, Joe DiPasquantonio, who allegedly asked her to perform oral sex on him.
The former employee asked her co-worker to stop the unwanted advances and he replied to her saying, “I don’t give a s**t what these idiots think because “I’m in love with you, and I will leave my wife for you if you give me a chance.”
After the incident, she went to her direct supervisor to inform her of DiPasquantonio’s disturbing behavior.
Breen said Laura Daniel, her direct supervisor, ignored her complaint of sexual harassment in 2013. Breen was then fired the following year.
Officials at the Trump National Golf Course claim that Breen was fired for gambling at work and time-card theft even though she claims she was fired for complaining about being allegedly sexually harassed.
“I followed the rules by reporting it and instead of providing any help, they have retaliated and attacked me,” she said. “They took away the job I loved and worked to make my life a nightmare.”
It’s no surprise that this startling news comes from a former Trump employee, as the presidential candidate himself previously stated that if his daughter was sexually harassed in the workplace, she should find another career.
