El Dorado County probation employees tired of workplace harassment

Chaotic could be one word to describe the El Dorado County Probation Department. Discriminatory, dysfunctional and secretive would be other words. “The kids aren’t the problem, management is,” said one person who recently severed ties with the department.

At first Janette said, “I’d rather not comment” – in response to whether he applied to be the chief permanently. Then he added, “I will not be our next chief.”

Harassment, according to those who spoke with LTN, is verbal and sexual – and ongoing.
