Los Alamos County and former employee Diana Stepan have reached a settlement.
According to a statement released late Friday, the settlement was reached Aug. 1.
The settlement addresses a claim that Stepan had filed last year against the county and former acting county administrator Randy Autio after her termination of employment.
The statement read, “the county was represented in the settlement by the New Mexico Self-Insurer's Fund, an insurance pool of New Mexico municipalities and other political subdivisions, including the County, through an arrangement with the New Mexico Municipal League.
Under the agreement, the New Mexico Self-Insurer's Fund will pay $800,000 to Stepan. The county will pay $175,000 of that settlement, which includes a $25,000 deductible.”
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed in favor of former Assistant County Administrator Diana Stepan in her case against Los Alamos County back in June.
