Fife is Home to Two of the 'Worst Bosses' in America

Seems inexplicable but the little city of Fife, best known as a repository for a dozen or more car dealerships scattered along Interstate 5, is home to two of the worst bosses in America. That's right, Fife, gateway to Tacoma, population 9,173, has managed to land a couple of notorious spots on eBossWatch's third annual top 100 list of the nation's most, shall we say, difficult bosses.

The dubious duo are Fife police lieutenants. One of them is Jeff Westover, who finished 46th on the list. The 17-year veteran of the force resigned earlier this year amid allegations of indecent exposure and sexual harassment that date back to 2001.

The other Fife cop is Douglas Burris (No. 80 on the list) who failed to report a sexual harassment complaint that was reported to him. According to the complaint, a female police officer said another Fife police employee allegedly showed her pornographic images on his cellphone and pressured her into sexual acts. Burris is still on the job.

Fife police commander Tim Floyd declined comment today on the worst boss list, and referred out call to Andrea Edwards in the city manager's office. She could not be reached for comment.

Also making the list, at No. 53, is Edmond's Mayor Mike Cooper, who, according to complaints, allegedly created a hostile work environment.

Topping the charts were movie producer Jon Peters, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Tucson City Councilman Ted Abrams, all with charges of sexual harassment.

Herman Cain was listed at No. 35. We think you may able to guess the reason.

"We continue to be shocked and outraged by the egregious harassment and discrimination that happens in far too many American workplaces," said Asher Adelman, founder of the four-year old site that enables people to anonymously rate their bosses and evaluate potential employers.
