Gender discrimination settlement at plant in Peabody

The Salem News reported this week that the Peabody Municipal Light Plant paid $112,500 to settle a gender discrimination complaint brought by a female plant worker.  The worker alleged that she was repeatedly passed over for promotion in favor of less qualified male plant workers.  The settlement amount includes a $65,000 payment of attorneys' fees to the plaintiff.
