Column Extra: Read the Sherles v. SEIU Local 1000 sexual harassment lawsuit documents

In case you missed it, this week’s State Worker column looks at the sexual harassment lawsuit Franchise Tax Board employee Mechelle Sherles brought against her union, SEIU Local 1000. A judge recently sided with the union, which argued that Sherles was a state employee (on union paid leave to bargain contracts) when a Local 1000 staffer allegedly kissed her and sent her sexually explicit text messages. Her lawsuit alleged that other union officials mistreated her physically and emotionally after she tried to resolve the harassment internally.
