Social Services Supervisor targeted In Sexual Harassment Case Gets $45,000
A social work supervisor, Cesar Bedroni who sued the county for wrongful termination in a sexual harassment case has settled his lawsuit for $45,000 and the right to resign rather than be fired. The Board of Supervisors first fired Bedroni on Feb. 18, 2005, after nine allegations of sexual harassment against female co-workers from 2003.
County Administrative Officer David Edge said at the time that the county must send a message to its employees that it would not tolerate sexual harassment. Bedroni appealed his firing to the Civil Service Commission. Both sides believe the settlement is fair and allows everyone to move forward.
