Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility today accused the National Park Service of “burying” a 2018 report that provided a detailed and critical look at the agency’s long-standing struggles with employee harassment and its “toxic culture.”

The report cited “the pervasiveness of disrespectful and abusive behavior” within the park system, with employees complaining of “lack of responsiveness, insensitivity and the failure to address complaints against prominent individuals.”

In addition, PEER said the report pointed to “a total lack of accountability for misconduct,” especially among superintendents and other senior officials who are “transferred or even promoted rather than given realistic and appropriate consequences.”
