Rick Braswell, Former BSO Chaplain, Named Among "Worst Bosses in America" for 2011
Two months after resigning from his position as the chaplain for the Broward Sheriff's Office, Rick Braswell has been named as one of the 100 "worst bosses in America."
Braswell, who raked in a six-figure income with the sheriff's office, was accused by several female employees of numerous wrongdoings, including "inappropriate conduct."
The company that puts out this list, eBossWatch, released its third installment of the "worst bosses in America" list, and the list is created by a panel of four "workplace experts."
Braswell joins a few people he probably won't be thrilled to be listed with, including alleged child rapist Jerry Sandusky, former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, and movie producer Jon Peters.
The South Florida Times broke the Braswell story, although the details of what he's accused of or what investigators at the sheriff's office found are sparse.
The sheriff's office told the Times at the time that documents related to the investigation were not available when they requested them, and the BSO did not immediately respond to New Times' inquiry.
Braswell had been hired by the department in February 1989, and previously worked with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.
