Female Corrections Officer Files Discrimination Lawsuit Against Co-Workers After Affair Goes Public
A Riker’s Island prison officer who says she “suffered” physical and verbal abuse at the hands of her female co-workers after her affair with the married warden of the prison went public is now filing a lawsuit against them claiming that she wasn’t the only one gettin’ her freak on at work.

A new discrimination lawsuit filed in the Bronx Supreme Court on Monday alleges that sex between officers and supervisors is “rampant” at the city’s jails on Riker’s Island and no one is doing anything to stop it, according to the New York Post.
The officer filing the claim against the city’s Department of Corrections (DOC), Tomara Bryan (pictured), accuses her female supervisors of verbally and physically abusing her after discovering that she was having a consensual affair with married ex-warden Emmanuel Bailey.
Bryan says that her bosses would discipline her harshly while letting the male guards, who were allegedly getting freaky on the job as well, off of the hook.
Her relationship with Bailey reportedly soured after she pressed domestic abuse charges him. Bryan claims he punched her in the face, kicked her in the stomach and punched a hole through her wall at her Brooklyn apartment. Baily was arrested on harassment and assault charges. He eventually pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and received a conditional discharge, according to The Post. Baily has since retired.
SMH. Is there not enough work to be done at Riker’s Island??
Do you think this woman should be suing her co-workers, or does ridicule and harassment come with the territory when you’re having an affair with a married co-worker?
