Former County Human Resources Director Files Lawsuit

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

A former employee of Butte-Silver Bow County is filing a lawsuit against her former employer for wrongful termination.

Just months ago Lindsey Moe was released from her job. Now the former director of human resources is filing a lawsuit against the county.

In May former county director of human resources, Lindsey Moe, was placed on administrative leave after the county launched an investigation saying Moe violated county procedures and policies.

The Associated Press reports Vincent fired Moe for failing to inform him about a group of employees considering a lawsuit against the county over wage issues.

According to the county charter, Moe could only be terminated if approved by the county commissioners.

In October the commissioners approved her firing during a closed door meeting.

According to court documents, that meeting was private as Vincent announced he wanted to protect the privacy interests of other employees.

Documents say Moe and her attorney were present at the meeting but were not allowed to give rebuttal while Vincent and county attorney Eileen Joyce gave reason to why Moe should be terminated.

Moe alleges the county's actions violated her due process and equal protection rights.

She is seeking money for lost wages and benefits.
