GEORGETOWN, IL. (ECWd) -
Two former City of Georgetown employees filed suit in Federal Court in Urbana against the City, the trustees and the mayor claiming wrongful termination, employment discrimination, civil rights violations.
The Mayor apparently fired the two employees and then turned around and hired her own daughter as the replacement - and was even the deciding vote of a split city council. As if that wasn't enough, the employees were not given an opportunity to contest any of the reasons they were dismissed and were later subjected to defamatory remarks as to why they were terminated.
