After she launched a complaint of sexual harassment against a male colleague, a female prison guard felt management didn’t do enough to protect her, leading to her resignation.

Jylian MacLeod began work at the Fort Smith Correctional Centre (FSCC) in Fort Smith, N.W.T., as a casual corrections officer in 2010, eventually becoming a relief corrections officer.

On Feb. 20, 2012, MacLeod filed a sexual harassment complaint against coworker Wilfred Paulette. The report came back on May 11 and found her complaint was valid.
