Housekeeping supervisors in two Alabama cities are facing multiple charges, including sexual harassment, as a result of an investigation into allegations that supervisors are using their position to sexually harass subordinates, the Associated Press reported Friday.
In Montgomery, the allegations involve a female supervisor, who worked at the local school district, according to the AP.
She was accused of using inappropriate language and sexual touching to advance her career and gain access to children.
She allegedly harassed her male co-workers, who also worked in the school district.
The allegations also include one male supervisor, according the AP, who was accused by a female subordinate.
A spokeswoman for the Montgomery County Public Schools, which oversees Montgomery, said the district is working with the Montgomery police department.
The other alleged supervisor, a male assistant supervisor, has been placed on administrative leave and was released without being charged.
The assistant supervisor did not immediately return a phone message Friday.
The AP report was based on interviews with the women who worked with the two men, as well as information about the investigations by the Montgomery city attorney’s office.
It is unclear how many other people have come forward with similar allegations.
