African-American woman finds noose in cubicle
A Washington County, Oregon woman found a noose in her cubicle at her office.
Vanessa Savage entered her job at Washington County’s housing authority and saw the noose, from her supervisor, attached with a note that said “termination notice.”
“This is 2014 and a supervisor brings a noose to work and nothing is done about it,” Savage said.
Shocked and distraught, Savage notified authorities of the incident. Despite these facts, an investigation from the county concluded that there was no racial undertone, but it has been recommended that they order all the employees undergo sensitivity training.
Savage hired an attorney to help her with her case. Since the incident, she has taken a leave of absence from work, due to feelings of working in a hostile environment.
The outcome of the case remains to be seen.
