Pittsburg State to appeal sexual harassment ruling

KSAL StaffDecember 10, 2016

Pittsburg State University plans to appeal a recent federal jury decision that awarded $230,000 to a former employee who accused a university employee of sexually harassing her.

A jury in U.S. District Court in Kansas found recently that Pittsburg State violated Martha Fox’s civil rights and awarded her $230,000.

Court records show that Fox, a former custodial specialist, alleged that a supervisor sexually harassed and Pittsburg State officials didn’t appropriately investigate her harassment claims. The supervisor denied the accusations and later retired.

Pittsburg State President Steve Scott told The Joplin Globe (http://j.mp/2gfoUYt) that no sexual harassment took place, and that the university’s position “will prevail.”
