Excerpts:

Former employees describe a gossipy culture of paranoia and suspicion where women are subject to special scrutiny and rebuke

…The Hogan controversy and the O’Connor suit have raised questions and brought forth new allegations about how the culture at Ramsey Solutions affects women.

O’Connor’s lawyers have argued that the company’s policy about sex outside of marriage is effectively harsher on women for the obvious reason that they will be exposed if they become pregnant.

Former Ramsey employees who spoke to the Scene — two women and a man who spoke under the condition of anonymity for fear of attracting the ire of a man whose orbit they’ve tried to leave — describe a gossipy culture of paranoia and suspicion in which everything from women’s clothing to which co-workers they spend time with is subject to scrutiny and rebuke.

‘IT’S LIKE LEAVING THE CULT’ – Former employee suing Dave Ramsey speaks out for the first time, by J. Finley

This is an update to my previous post about this situation.

(Link): ‘IT’S LIKE LEAVING THE CULT’ – Former employee suing Dave Ramsey speaks out for the first time

Excerpts:

In her first interview since filing a federal lawsuit against the company of financial guru Dave Ramsey, Caitlin O’Conner described the company as a cult and said employees fear to make missteps in their personal lives for fear it will be reported to their work superiors.

O’Connor filed the federal lawsuit after she said she was fired for having premarital sex and becoming pregnant.

…That story featured audio of Ramsey speaking to staff, mocking employees who engage in premarital sex.

Evangelical CEO Dave Ramsey’s Company Fired Employees Who Had Premarital Sex by Leonardo Blair

Evangelical CEO Dave Ramsey’s Company Fired Employees Who Had Premarital Sex by Leonardo Blair

I wonder if, knowing this employer’s policy, if an unmarried woman gets pregnant while working at Ramsey’s place, if she feels trapped – doesn’t want to get fired – would she run out and get an abortion?

If a woman working for Dave Ramsey’s Solutions feels desperate enough, afraid she can’t pay her bills if she were to get fired, she may be tempted to get an abortion – thus hiding a pregnancy, and Ramsey’s company would never know, assuming she’s paying for it out of pocket and takes a personal day off. She would therefore avoid being fired.

Is that really what Ramsey and other, similar Christian employers want (assuming they’re pro-life)?

Ramsey Solutions said it did not fire an employee for being pregnant, but for having premarital sex. She disagrees.

Months after a former employee alleged in a lawsuit that she was fired by evangelical CEO Dave Ramsey’s Ramsey Solutions after becoming pregnant, the company’s lawyers responded in a recent court filing that she was fired for having premarital sex and so were multiple others.

The company also expects its employees to live by Judeo-Christian principles and submit to its “righteous living” policy.

In a recent motion to dismiss the case, cited Monday by (Link): The Tennessean, the company’s lawyers say former administrative assistant Caitlin O’Connor was terminated last June because she isn’t legally married to the father of her child.
