Employee sues city over lost wages, alleged harassment
WARREN — A 18-year employee of the city of Warren Utilities Department has sued the city over losing her shift leader position after taking family leave and then being harassed unfairly in her new position as assistant administrator.
Megan Stanislaw, who lives on West Avenue NW, through her attorney, F. Benjamin Rick III of Akron, is seeking punitive damage and awards for economic losses and future earnings. The lawsuit was filed April 13 and assigned to Common Pleas Judge Peter J. Kontos. She began working for the city in March 2003.
In the complaint, Stanislaw was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in October 2019 and took leave for two months. After she was cleared to return to her job, she was reassigned as a data entry operator at a pay rate that was $3 per hour less than she previously earned.
