Sexual Harassment Lawsuit With Marina Materowski Settles For $305,000
Hudson County will pay $305,000 to Marina Materowski to settle her sexual harassment lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed by Materowski, against the county and two correctional officers. According to published accounts Materowski alleged her two male colleagues made repeated derogatory comments, including calling her a "damn hussy" and "ho."
Additionally, Materowski claims that one of the men grabbed her off an office chair, pulled her onto the floor and physically restrained her by straddling her and grabbing her wrists. The other employee just sat and didn't intervene and try to stop what was taking place. This type of behavior in the workplace is no acceptable. This type of activity can also create a hostile work environment. Regardless of what paid mouthpieces say, the large settlement amount speaks for itself.
"The settlement should not be interpreted as an admission of guilt", county spokesman Jim Kennelly said.
