Lotus boss accused of ‘intimate relationship’ with PA

For Papows, sorrows come in battalions. But he probably thinks he made the battalions up

Just be pleased you're not Jeff Papows today. On top of the problems about his fantasy heroism as an aviator and chucker-back of live grenades, plus our story yesterday that noted that Notes was seen by the US Army as a secure product when Exchange wasn't, the news today is that he's been caught between two women. Sharon Ricci, Papows long-term executive assistant, who's worked with him at four companies for 15 years, has been accused of work-place bias, because she and Papows have been having "a long-term intimate relationship". As a result of this, the complainant, a Ms Arlene Greene, claims that the relationship helped Ricci and gave her undue power over senior female staffers at Lotus. Greene was terminated in October, supposedly because of staff reduction, although she claims that she was fired because she complained about work-place bias. Lotus says the complaint to the Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination is without merit, while an embarrassed IBM dived for cover and wouldn't comment. What surprises us about all this is why Papows is still in the helm at Lotus. We have a theory: but what do readers think? Information most welcome: Graham_Lea@compserve.com ®
