Insubordinate Staff gets $600,000 Award for Wrongful Firing

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation approving a $600,000 settlement in a wrongful-termination case filed by the former director of the Board of State Chiropractic Examiners.
Senate Bill 206, which Brown announced signing Tuesday, was approved with bipartisan support in the Legislature.
Catherine Hayes, who was fired from the chiropractic board staff in 2007, claimed in a lawsuit the following year that she was fired for cooperating with a criminal investigation and for clashes with board members appointed by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Hayes challenged the competency of the appointees shortly before the board fired her.
