One of the women involved in the infamous McKinney teen pool incident is now confirmed to be an employee at mortgage data firm CoreLogic [CLGX].
But maybe not for long.
While her behavior during her private time is greatly in question, her employer tells me it is totally unacceptable. And they’re right.
Here's a link to the larger issue of appropriate police officer response to that incident. This blog isn't about that.
Also, here’s an email from CoreLogic to me:
“CoreLogic does not condone violence, discrimination or harassment and takes conduct that is inconsistent with our values and expectations very seriously. As a result of these pending allegations, we have placed the employee in question on administrative leave while further investigations take place.”
The unnamed employee is identified in the press as Tracey Carver-Allbritton.
Here’s a screen shot of her allegedly throwing one of those punches CoreLogic does not approve of:
And here’s the video:
Draw your own conclusions. But know this, if you are employed in the mortgage finance industry, it’s a whole new world.
Your behavior is now considered reflective of your employer. And if this is, in fact, Carver-Allbritton behaving violently, then she left CoreLogic little choice than to place her on adminstrative leave.
This is the way it is right now. Carver-Albritton may be in the news today, but she is hardly alone in this type of reaction.
I've also argued that something as small as casual Tweeting can put your company in hot water (Reg Z violation).
Therefore, what else can CoreLogic do when their employee gets involved in something this big and bad?
In this case, they've done the right thing.
