Margaret Hines, Shannon Schlagenhauf, and Dawn-Shemain Weeks accuse John Haag of making inappropriate sexual comments, some of which were allegedly made in front of other CMEA partners. The women claim that the other partners did not act to stop the alleged sexual harassment.
Hines, Schlagenhauf, and Weeks submitted a formal complaint into the alleged sexually hostile work environment, and CMEA investigated the womens' allegations. John Haag subsequently resigned from CMEA.
The three executive assistants also allege that CMEA retaliated against them after they made the sexual harassment complaint by giving them fewer overtime opportunities.
