Investigation recommends anger management classes for Barrow County Commission Chairman

An independent investigation into employee complaints of workplace bullying by Barrow County bosses concluded that it didn’t find evidence of race and gender discrimination or sexual harassment.  

The investigator did, however, find that Commission Chairman Danny Yearwood and Community Development Director Lyn Clement had violated a county policy prohibiting “conduct that is offensive to employees,” the use of “abusive language or discourteous treatment”.  The investigator recommended that Yearwood and Clement attend anger management classes and diversity sensitivity training. 

Human Resources Director Norma Jean Brown had complained that Yearwood slapped and commented on her buttocks, yelled at Brown, and used abusive and threatening language.  Brown also complained to county commissioners that Clement regulary used the word “n—-r” when talking about black employees.

On the day that the investigator’s report was filed, an attorney for three of the employees filed a discrimination and harassment complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  The attorney claims that the investigator was biased in favor of Yearwood and the County.
