Cannella, a former production assistant who was later promoted to operations manager, has also asked the Colorado Department of Labor to investigate BLM for failure to pay employees for overtime.
Cannella says the sexual harassment by his female supervisor began shortly after he began working for BLM, and culminated when the supervisor left photographs of herself in beach attire on Cannella's desk.
Also, Bonnie Bell, a leading public representative of Bob Larson Ministries, has announced that she is leaving BLM and returning to Missouri for "personal reasons." Christianity Today reports that Bell is the fourth top female manager to quit or be fired from BLM since 1992.
Christianity Today obtained copies of ministry memos and published excerpts which suggest that the work atmosphere at BLM is tense and stressful, with Larson tightly controlling and browbeating his employees.
