A former financial manager for Joseph Chevrolet of Millington will be reinstated to her job and receive $168,000 after she was fired for ending a sexual relationship with owner Joseph Hood. The manager testified in arbitration that when she tried to end their four-year relationship, Hood told her that leaving him “was not an option,” and it would be the end of her job.
The arbitrator said there was no doubt Hood “followed through with the warning that he had repeatedly given her in the past.”
The manager lost on two civil rights claims because she failed to file an EEOC complaint.
