Sexual harassment complaints led to firing of Brunswick County Social Services Director

The Brunswick County Board of Social Services fired director Jamie Orrock on October 12 following an investigation into allegations that Orrock sexually harassed and retaliated against a number of female employees at his department.

According to the State Port Pilot, the board came to the following conclusions about Orrock:

• That he had “engaged in unlawful workplace harassment, as that term is defined under the law of the State of North Carolina, and sexual harassment, as that term is defined under the Personnel Manual for Brunswick County.”

• That he had “threatened retaliatory action against employees of the department who lodged (or might lodge) complaints against (him), and have actually engaged in acts of retaliation or reprisal against employees who provided testimony, evidence or information against (him) for alleged acts of unlawful workplace harassment or sexual harassment.”

• That he had undertaken, or as director had “failed to prevent retaliatory action against those who have complained of (his), unlawful workplace harassment.”

• That as a result of his conduct, “a hostile work environment exists within the department.”

• That he violated state and federal laws pertaining to “unlawful workplace harassment and/or sexual harassment.”

• That his conduct “is unbecoming of someone in the position of director of the department.”

• That his conduct “is detrimental to the service of the department.”
