Connie Devlyne claims that she has been “subjected to a hostile work environment because of gender. She has repeatedly, over the years, brought her male co-workers’ misconduct to the attention of management, but management has failed to respond effectively to redress or prevent such conduct.”
Devlyne’s colleage, Paul Glau, alleges that he was forced to retire as the district’s facilities manager on Dec. 31 “because of the hostile work environment he experienced in retaliation of his having supported and participated in Devlyne’s sexual harassment complaint.”
The complaint states that “LMUD’s General Manager Ray Luhring informed Glau that…if Glau did not agree to retire at the end of calendar year 2009, Luhring would fire him.”
Devlyne and Glau received right to sue letters from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing in February 2009.
