Target Leesburg VA HR Manager Fired a great employee wrongly
My daughter and her fiancee work at the Target store in Leesburg, VA.Things were okay until the new HR Manager Megan Johnson came there.
She hired one of her friends, some 31 year old guy that thinks he can now hit on the young women that work there. He comes up behind my daughter while she is working cashier and says, "Don't tell your man, but I'm coming after you." She is shocked and tells her fiancee that works at the store. He is a great guy and courteous to everyone. So he sees this as a threat to her and sexual harassment by the employee handbook and tells this creep to please not say anything to her that is not work related.
This guy goes ballistic and starts screaming "You don't know who I am and what I can do. I'll f**k you up." The young man goes from there to the HR Manager Megan Johnson and makes the report. She calls this creep in. The calls the young man in and tells him she is suspending him for being the "aggressor" to the 31 year old guy.
What!!! she tells my daughter that she isn't doing anything about the sexual harassment because the guy is "new". What!!! So 3 days later she calls the young man back in and tells him he is first of all fired and secondly that if he is ever seen on Target property again he will be arrested.
And the creep that feels he can hit on all the young girls gets nothing and according to Megan Johnson, HR Manager at the Leesburg VA store, all the girls should take anything he wants to say to them because he is "new". Needless to say, Corporate Target was contacted and a complaint was made. I told the Senior HR person, Dylan< that my take on this is that the creep and the HR Manager are friends or engaged in some other relationship and he agreed. We shall see if the senior HR Department in Target takes this seriously.
I told them they should or I'm coming to that store with the police, a lawyer, and Channel 5 News to find out why my daughter was threatened and nothing was done except the firing of the employee that reported the sexual harassment.I do have the direct line to the Target HR Dept if anyone needs it.
