Spencer H. Lewis, Jr., Director Equal Employment Opportunity CommissionPage 2August 14, 20138. Approximately 4 years ago, I became employed as the General Manager of theMcDonald’s establishment in Manada Hill, and in this capacity, I reported directly toMilton W. Green, III. I was suspended and terminated from my position as GeneralManager by H. James Rippon on July 4, 2013, three days after I reported to Mr. Ripponand Mr. Green my objection and opposition to the discriminatory employment practicesof my employer, H. James Rippon Enterprises.9. During the course of my employment as General Manager of the McDonald’sestablishment in Manada Hill, I became aware of numerous discriminatory employment practices of my employer, including but not limited to the following examples:(a) H. James Rippon is, and has been for the past two years since his releasefrom a psychiatric institution, obsessed with female prostitutes, andstrippers who perform exotic dances on stage and in private lap dance booths at local and out of state “Gentlemen’s Club” establishments.Mr. Rippon has on numerous occasions solicited and received sexualfavors from female prostitutes. In this regard, Mr. Rippon directed PamelaWagner, who is the General Manager of the McDonald’s establishment inShamokin Dam, to transmit sexually explicit messages on his behalf to a particular prostitute (“Ms. M”) on multiple occasions, both during andafter the regular work hours of Ms. Wagner. Apparently, Mr. Rippon didnot know how to send text messages, and he directed Ms. Wagner to sendMs. M sexually explicit text messages upon his demand, which textmessages were specifically dictated by Mr. Rippon, either in person or over the telephone, to Ms. Wagner during and after her regular work hours. Mr. Rippon further directed Ms. Wagner to send herself an email of all such text messages she transmitted to Ms. M so that Ms. Wagner couldmake a copy thereof, during her regular work hours and utilizing companyresources, to give to Mr. Rippon for his review and prurient interest.Further, when Ms. M would respond to text messages sent to her by Ms.Wagner at Mr. Rippon’s demand, Ms. Wagner was directed by Mr.Rippon to immediately advise him of Ms. M’s response and, in turn, totransmit Ms. M a text response dictated by him, in the event he deemed aresponse to be necessary. On one of many such occasions, which occurredon or about June 27, 2012, Mr. Rippon dictated to Ms. Wagner, while thetwo of them were sitting together in the McDonald’s establishment inShamokin Dam, a sexually explicit text message to Ms. M, and he directedMs. Wagner to send the text message to Ms. M, which she did. This textmessage is set forth in Exhibit “A,” which is a copy of the text messagesent by Ms. Wagner to Ms. M on June 27, 2012 and subsequently

Lewis, Jr., Director Equal Employment Opportunity CommissionPage 3August 14, 2013transmitted by Ms. Wagner to her own email address, following which acopy of the email was made by Ms. Wagner and given to Mr. Rippon per his directive. This misconduct by Mr. Rippon constituted, in my opinion,discriminatory employment practices by my employer, H. James RipponEnterprises.(b) In his capacity as Supervisor, and at H. James Rippon’s request and/or demand, Milton W. Green, III regularly made travel arrangements, bothfor travel in Pennsylvania and out of state, for young female prostituteswith whom Mr. Rippon desired to engage in sexual liaisons, whicharrangements were made by Mr. Green during his regular work hours andutilizing company resources. Further, at Mr. Rippon’s request and/or demand, Mr. Green regularly researched the personal and family backgrounds of young female prostitutes with whom Mr. Rippon wasengaging in sexual liaisons, during Mr. Green’s regular work hours andutilizing company resources, for the purpose of providing Mr. Ripponinformation that he could use to manipulate, intimidate and further subjugate such individuals. This misconduct by Mr. Rippon and Mr.Green constituted, in my opinion, discriminatory employment practices bymy employer, H. James Rippon Enterprises.(c) In his capacity as General Partner, H. James Rippon engaged in other misconduct creating a hostile and offensive work environment for employees of H. James Rippon Enterprises, including asking a youngfemale employee at the McDonald’s establishment in Manada Hill,inappropriate and personal questions about her body tattoos, and askinganother young female employee at the same McDonald’s establishmenthow to operate a cell phone, which conduct I believe was in the nature of grooming such employees for future sexual activity. This misconduct byMr. Rippon constituted, in my opinion, discriminatory employment practices by my employer, H. James Rippon Enterprises.(d) In his capacity as Supervisor, Milton W. Green, III engaged in misconductcreating a hostile and offensive work environment for employees of H. James Rippon Enterprises, including but not limited to the followingexamples: (i) saying to a young female employee at the McDonald’sestablishment in Shamokin Dam, in response to her request for a work-related certificate evidencing her work credentials, “You look great, bendover again for me.” ; and (ii) making inappropriate suggestions of a sexualnature to a young female employee at the McDonald’s establishment inManada Hill, which precipitated the employee’s subsequent resignation
