Nathalie Elimas, Secretary of State for Priority Education, is accused of harassment of her employees. An administrative inquiry has been opened.
This “will shed light on any difficulties related to labor relations within the firm”, confirmed the cabinet of Nathalie Elimas to AFP. He assured that this investigation was aimed at the functioning of the cabinet in general, and not specifically the secretary of state.
The conclusions should be made in the coming weeks. All cabinet members were heard, including Nathalie Elimas, according to several sources.
Half a dozen victims
According to AFP, half a dozen people are affected by the facts, including two who have worked in the cabinet of Nathalie Elimas since she was appointed Secretary of State in July 2020.
One of the potential victims spoke of “numerous sick leaves” and “departures of collaborators”. Another denounced “widespread harassment” and a third a “descent into hell”, insisting on the numerous “tantrums” of the Secretary of State.
Nathalie Elimas, 48, was elected MoDem MP for Val d’Oise in 2017. She was then appointed Secretary of State for Priority Education, to the Minister of Education Jean-Michel Blanquer.
