Complainants who took part in an independent probe into claims of a toxic workplace culture at Rideau Hall claim former governor general Julie Payette’s verbal harassment of staff crossed over into instances of physical contact, CBC News has learned.
The claims of physical contact were reported in testimony given to Quintet Consulting during interviews and will be included in the final report, multiple sources said.
Several sources with direct knowledge of the final report say Payette’s workplace behaviour went beyond screaming at, belittling and publicly humiliating employees — and included unwelcome physical contact that caused some participants in the review to feel threatened.
CBC News has not yet seen a copy of the final report, which is expected to be redacted to protect complainants’ identities and released under privacy laws through access-to-information requests.
Rideau Hall spent over $110,000 on legal fees in response to bullying, harassment claims Payette’s access to expense account ‘under careful consideration,’ says Freeland.
Roughly 100 public servants volunteered to be interviewed during the third-party review of the workplace culture at Rideau Hall.
Quintet Consulting’s final report concluded that Payette and her second-in-command, Assunta Di Lorenzo, were responsible for a toxic workplace environment at Rideau Hall, according to a government source with direct knowledge.
