Two former employees of Outpost Pines have alleged sexual harassment against it's manager Mario Priola. In an interview with the New York Post, Rapuano-Novella one of the complainants states that Priola was "relentless" in his sexual overtures, which eventually drove him to quit his job.
Even before he started his job, Rapuano-Novella received inappropriate text and was asked to send explicit photo. In the suit it is alleged that Priola would asked him to sleep over and "grope his penis". It appears that when brought to the attention of HR, they response was that "there was nothing they could do".
My opinion regarding this matter is simple. No one should have to endure any form of sexual harassment. There is no excuse for this behavior. Some of the comments on Queerly were quite interesting.
