The director of Poland's Caritas charitable agency, Father Adam Deren, has been accused of workplace harassment by former employees, the newspaper Rzeczpospolita reports.
Father Deren, under whose leadership the number of Caritas Poland employees has decreased from 28 to 16, says that when he assumed the position, the former director, Father Wojciech Lozewski advised him to fire all employees.
Former employees claim Father Deren called them vulgar names and belittled them.
Father Derene was named this week by Pope Benedict XVI as a member of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, the official charitable arm of the papacy.
