In their statement, MPAC and Hall say the meeting was about a “potential reputational risk and public relations issue” and deny Hall swore or engaged in any coercion or violence. In her suit, Rich says she is suffering from “severe depressive disorder” and post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the meeting. According to her suit, Rich filed a workplace complaint the day after the meeting, tried to work from home and did not return to work. In their statement of defence, MPAC and Hall say the investigation findings “confirmed that there was no aspect of violence” in the interaction. Two days later, on May 17, MPAC fired Rich, “paid no severance” and cut her benefits, the suit states.
