County Council Chair Sharon Stover said that Council will review in closed session June 12, last week’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruling regarding former Assistant County Administrator Diana Stepan’s charges against Los Alamos County.
The EEOC found the County guilty of sex discrimination as well as retaliation against Stepan.
Stepan filed a grievance against former County Administrator Tony Mortillaro. She was fired Jan. 3, 2011.
Attorney Sam Bregman spoke to the Los Alamos Daily Post about the EEOC ruling in his client’s favor.
“We are very pleased and not surprised with the decision of the EEOC,” Bregman said Friday. “All along we were convinced that Diana was discriminated against and we will now hold Los Alamos County responsible in a court of law.”
