Iowa board tables $100,000 settlement with worker

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The State Appeal Board is delaying the approval of a proposed $100,000 settlement with a former Glenwood Resource Center employee who claimed she faced retaliation.

The board tabled the state's settlement Monday with Cecilia Carman, who alleged officials violated the Iowa Civil Rights Act when they failed to rehire her.

Board members said they wanted more details before approving the payments for lost wages, emotional distress and legal fees for Carman.

The board's executive secretary, Joe Barry, said Tuesday that members wanted more information about the details, including whether actions have been taken to prevent similar problems in the future. He says it is expected to be considered at the board's June 2 meeting, if not earlier.

The settlement came as the case was scheduled for trial last month.
