KCC Provides $29K Over Discrimination Allegation

KSAL StaffAugust 5, 2015

The Kansas Corporation Commission has provided nearly $30,000 to its former general counsel over allegations of disabilities discrimination.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the KCC, which regulates public utilities including electric and water companies, settled with its former attorney Dana Bradbury for $29,458. The newspaper received a copy of the settlement in response to an open records request.

The settlement contains no admission of wrongdoing or liability on the part of the KCC.

Documents showed the settlement was over allegations of discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The KCC approved the settlement on April 23 after a closed executive session.

The agreement doesn’t provide any additional information regarding the alleged discrimination but says Bradbury also filed a charge of discrimination with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in February.
