What follows is the exact text of the only message Penland School has sent to the local community about this matter:


To the Penland community:
Some of you may have recently received a communication from potter John Britt having to do with past employment practices at Penland. During the past week, he has also made numerous posts about this on Facebook and other Internet platforms. We have posted a response on our website, which you can read here: http://www.penland.org/about/response.html.






The situation in question was resolved in 2007, although John was clearly not satisfied with the way it was handled. We want to assure you that Penland follows all applicable labor laws, including those governing overtime pay, which is the issue underlying John's complaint. If, after reading our response, you have further questions, you can direct them to Jean McLaughlin (jeanmclaughlin@penland.org) or Robin Dreyer (publications@penland.org). We are committed to answering all inquiries and will be sure to get back to you.

Thanks for your ongoing support of Penland School.
