McGrory v. Applied Signal Tech

Articles Discussing Case:

Court of Appeal: Discharge of Executive Uncooperative in Investigation

Shaw Valenza LLP • January 28, 2013
Applied Signal fired John McGrory. One of his reports, Dana Thomas, complained to human resources that McGrory harassed / discriminated against her because of her sex / sexual orientation. Applied hired an outside investigator. McGrory did not like the investigator, but she exonerated him of mistreating Thomas. She did find, though, that McGrory was untruthful and uncooperative during the investigation. She also found that McGrory violated the company's anti-harassment policy because he made off-color jokes related to sex and national origin.
