Councillor Pouget Accused Of Harassment

anne jarvis, the windsor star, reports that in 2011, McTague Law Firm investigated and reported its findings to Hurst, cited as the person who had witnessed the harassment. Citing allegations that Pouget is demanding and critical of top town staff and testy emails by her, the report concluded that Pouget had been harassing staff.

The article continued that the report also included, “These same councillors also indicated that they found it ironic that I was appointed to investigate an allegation of workplace harassment against Councillor Pouget when they feel it is you (Hurst) that is engaging in workplace harassment by the manner in which you communicate in council meetings.”

According to Jarvis, the investigation was never approved by council and it cost more than $16,000, according to public accounts.
