Iowa To Pay Thousands to Ex-UNI Worker

Iowa's executive branch has agreed to pay $125,000 to a former University of Northern Iowa employee who claimed she suffered discrimination and retaliation.

The State Appeal Board approved a settlement Monday between the state and Dianne Bascom, a former account clerk for the university's fundraising foundation.

In exchange for the payment, Bascom agreed to drop a lawsuit in which she claimed school officials discriminated against her due to her disabilities and retaliated against her for opposing discrimination and taking medical leave.

Bascom also agreed that she will be barred from working again for any of the state's three public universities or their sponsored programs.

The money for the settlement will come from the state's general fund. Lawyers for the Iowa Attorney General's Office and Bascom negotiated the deal through mediation.
