An American woman who claimed she was spanked on the job as part of camaraderie-building exercises has been awarded $1.7 million (£930,000) in damages and compensation.

Janet Orlando, 53, from California, said she was embarrassed, permanently scarred and mentally anguished by the fraternity-like atmosphere at her former employer, home security company Alarm One Inc.

According to court documents, sales teams at Alarm One were encouraged to compete, and the losers were forced to eat baby food, wear diapers, or get spanked on the buttocks.

A jury of six men and six women found yesterday that Ms Orlando had suffered from sexual harassment and sexual battery when she was paddled on her backside on three occasions.

The jury initially awarded her $500,000 in compensatory damages for lost wages, emotional distress and medical expenses. After further deliberation, the jury added another $1.2 million in punitive damages, lawyers said.

The spanking incidents occurred in 2003 and stopped as soon as executives at company headquarters in Anaheim, California, received a complaint.

Ms Orlando left her job at Alarm One in 2004, less than a year after she was hired, saying she couldn't bear the humiliation of the company's team-building practices.
