Worst Boss List

At some point in your working career you’re gonna run across a boss you just can’t stand. The good news is you’re not alone, a lot of us have had a worst boss experience.

A website called eBossWatch.com keeps track of America’s worst bosses.

Since 2009 the website puts together the list of Worst Bosses of the year.

For the first time 2 East Tennessee bosses made the list of the 2011 Worst Bosses.

 

The winners are:

Hotel magnate Ken Seaton, who was jailed last year over unwanted sexual advances towards women, he is ranked #9 out of 100

And former Campbell County school board chairman Mark Wells, who ranked No. 94.

The list was determined by a panel of four experts in workplace harassment who reviewed reports and court documents on more than 200 bosses nationwide.

Here’s what’s interesting, as of December 2011, the 100 bosses who made the list had cost their employers more than $145 million in monetary damages and lawsuit settlement payments.

Seaton was named because he spent a stint behind bars in Sevier County after pleading guilty to three counts of simple assault and "no contest" in two other cases, all related to alleged sexual advances made on female employees.

Wells was named following a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit settlement. The suit was initially filed by a Campbell County schools employee and cost the district nearly $100,000.

The website, eBossWatch.com, serves as a clearinghouse for people who have been treated badly by bosses to report them for their egregiously bad behavior.

Who’s number 1? Jon Peters, a movie producer from Los Angeles.

In case you are wondering, the states with the most bad bosses on the list are California (19), Florida (8), New York (6), New Jersey (6) and Wisconsin (5).

Tennessee was next on the list with four, including Paul Page, formerly with the city of Chattanooga (No. 20), and Frank Kassela, president of Mid-American Specialties in Memphis (No. 31).

COULD YOU IMAGINE IF THEY HAD A LIST LIKE THIS IN THE 1960’S AND 1970’S? WATCH AN EPISODE OF MAD MANN AND ALL OF THE GUYS WOULD BE ON THE TOP 10 LIST!
