Fomer Exec Sues Passages Alleging Fraud

9/19/2018 -ATIN- A former executive at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers, a high-end addiction treatment provider with facilities Southern California, has sued the company for retaliating against her due to allegations fraud in the company.

Maureen Fahey, a former senior vice president of operations for Passages, filed suit in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging that, in her position, she uncovered evidence that the CEO and his father, Pax and Chris Prentiss, as well as other executives in the company, were deliberately committing fraud.

After confronting the company leadership about this, Fahey alleges that she and her husband, also an executive at the company, were subjected to escalating retaliation and mistreatment, and were eventually fired.

Additionally, the lawsuit claims that Fahey was subject to sexual discrimination and harassment, including unwanted touching and sexual intimidation by Chris Prentiss, the company's president.

Representing Fahey is Carney Shegerian, head of Shegerian & Associates, a Los Angeles employment law firm.

Shegerian previously won a judgement against Passages. In 2017, the firm won a $1.82 million verdict on behalf of client Cynthia Begazo. The jury in that case found that Passages had discriminated against Begazo due to her disability and whistleblowing actions.

Passages has centers in Malibu, Venice, Ventura and Santa Monica.
