State worker files complaint on Oregon social services dept.

(Information from: The Register-Guard,

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A former employee has filed a complaint against the Oregon Department of Human Services, claiming the state’s social services agency mishandled her safety concerns involving a police officer who has since resigned amid criminal and internal investigations.

The Register-Guard reports the woman’s complaint filed in July with the Bureau of Labor and Industries claimed that created a hostile work environment that lead her to resign.

The woman said the state failed to protect her from Lane County Sheriff’s Office deputy Bryan Holiman after she encountered him while working for the agency.

She said he made sexual comments, showed up uninvited and continued to try to contact her even after he was ordered to stop.

Holiman, who resigned in March after similar complaints were discovered, couldn’t be reached for comment.
