Fresno Woman Won Spanking Lawsuit against Alarm One Inc.
Topic: Media Impact

Workplace Sexual Harassment is not to be tolerated: Janet Orlando's Case Shed Light on Bad Business Practices

In its hey day, Alarm One, based in Anaheim, had more than 300 employees who provide sales, installation, service and alarm monitoring to thousands of families across this country. Since the lawsuit filed by the Fresno woman, the company downsized to 50 employees. It has also closed many of its branch offices. The Fresno office did not escape the ax.

Under the guise of motivational trainings, spankings took place. They occurred during sales staff meetings attended by teams of salespeople that competed against each other. The court testimony showed that in order to motivate the teams, the losers were spanked on the buttocks area while onlookers were hooting and yelling unbecoming comments. The court testimony showed that the atmosphere was one of complete lack of respect for the workforce. The Alarm One company knew it had some problems when it settled with some other employees who brought their lawsuit.

Jurors heard the arguments presented by both sides. They decided to side with Janet Orlando. The jury of six men and six women deliberated about 9 hours over two and reached its verdict. Janet Orlando has become the new millionaire in town. Well, we know she will get about $800,00. Hooting and hollering abusive language in a court of law is not permissible.
