13 disciplined, 2 fired in shipyard sexual harassment probe

BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — Investigators have completed a 10-month inquiry into sexual harassment allegations at a Puget Sound Naval Shipyard that led to 13 people being disciplined and two fired from their positions. The Kitsap Sun reported more than 150 interviews were conducted after a former employee of the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton made the harassment claims in a September social media post. Brandon Hunt detailed pervasive sexual harassment she and others faced at Kitsap County’s largest employer. In addition to the two employees who were fired, the investigation resulted in two demotions, three reprimands and suspensions lasting between one and 10 days.
