The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed in favor of former Assistant County Administrator Diana Stepan in her case against Los Alamos County, according to the EEOC determination letter obtained by the Los Alamos Monitor.
The EEOC found the county guilty of sex discrimination as well as retaliation. Stepan was fired in early 2011 after filing a grievance against former County Administrator Tony Mortillaro in 2010. The county council terminated Mortillaro in late 2010.
Council chair Sharon Stover said Monday the council will discuss the situation during a closed session at its next meeting June 12. Ironically, the county hired a new attorney – Rebecca Ehler — Monday.
