Oregon Teacher's Retaliation Case Settles
A gender discrimination lawsuit between a teacher and her Oregon school district that we blogged about last fall settled this week for $20,000. The teacher had sued the Salem-Keizer School District, alleging that her after she reported harassment by her fellow teachers, she was retaliated against with unsatisfactory performance reviews. After a mediation, the parties agreed to a settlement amount designed to cover the plaintiff's legal fees, and also to expunge the negative reviews from her record.
