Metro Detroit: Newsmakers June 22, 2010




Radio Ink:

U.S. District Judge Paul Borman has ordered Lynne Woodison's complaint against Greater Media's WCSX/Detroit to arbitration. Woodison, who is alleging sex discrimination at the station, had argued that, with her contract expired, the clause no longer applies. Woodison had a contract that ran from 2007 through February 2008, and continued to work at WCSX after that agreement expired. Greater Media was unable to produce a contract renewal, but did come up with a memo referring to a renewed contract that ran through February 2009. Additionally, says the ruling, "[Woodison] never protested that she was not in fact employed under a renewal of the 2007 Employment Agreement, accepted her increased $5,200/month salary, and continued to accept wages and bonuses for three months after her last day of work: from November 11, 2008 to February 28, 2009." Borman ruled that the arbitration agreement is binding even after the contract's expiration, and in any event was persuaded by Greater Media's argument that the contract had indeed been renewed. The court case is now stayed pending the outcome of arbitration... WCSX discrimination case ordered to arbitration (Tue, 6/22)
