Woman spanked at work entitled to $1.4M settlement

Posted: Updated:

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — A Clovis woman who reached a $1.4 million settlement with her former employer after being spanked in front of jeering co-workers finally has the right to get paid.

Janet Orlando reached the 2006 settlement after Anaheim-based Alarm One Inc. appealed an earlier jury verdict. Orlando originally was awarded $1.7 million for being humiliated by the so-called team-building exercise, in which employees spanked each other with competitors' yard signs.

But the former alarm system saleswoman never got a penny. The company and its liability insurers challenged the settlement contract, saying that no bank would finance the deal so they weren't bound by it.

A Fresno County Superior Court jury on Tuesday found the companies breached the contract, and Orlando was entitled to the money.
