Wyoming state officials recently released hundreds of previously confidential pages of a highly critical report about the leadership of Cindy Hill, Wyoming’s popularly-elected superintendent of public instruction.

As the emails indicate employees feel the need to use bear spray and baseball bats around Hill, she is surely a nominee for “Bad Boss of the Year.”

Eric Owens of The Daily caller has the details:

No fewer than six Wyoming Department of Education employees complained of stress-related health issues stemming from Hill’s management style, reports the Casper Star-Tribune.

One employee claimed she lost eyelashes as a result of stress during the two years she worked at the department. She said she also experienced stomach problems and insomnia. On a particular day in October 2012, the worker alleged that the stress was so bad she called her doctor because she believed she was suffering a heart attack.

Other employees report trips to the emergency room, substantially increased blood pressure and prescriptions for antidepressants.

Hill told the Star-Tribune that she was not aware of the stress-related problems and did not know why employees felt frazzled.

“There seems to be a subculture within the department that I was unaware of,” she explained.

Hill also allegedly touched two male staffers in awkward ways.

One man said the education boss once gave him an unsolicited back massage “for a long time” during a meeting—so long that attempted to move away. At another, one-on-one meeting, she allegedly rubbed his arm.

At other times, she would clutch this guy’s shoulders and get in his face, according to the Star-Tribune. “Do you support me?” she would ask, “If I ask you to do something, will you do it?”

….The already-released allegations against Hill are also impressive.

In response to some threat that was never identified in the initial report, employees say they arranged a set of code words to protect themselves. “Young, pretty girls” felt especially threatened, notes the Star-Tribune.

One employee brought a baseball bat to work for use as a safety measure in the women’s bathroom. It was a joke at first, but some women allegedly took it to the bathroom with them for actual self-defense. Another worker brought bear spray to the office.

There was also an unofficial buddy system so that workers could walk in pairs to storage areas, to the basement, and to the parking lot.
