WINTHROP, Maine (AP) – A 17-year employee of the Winthrop schools whose contract was not renewed in June 2012 says she was a victim of discrimination and retaliation in the workplace.
Human resources clerk Jennifer Ma Sims, originally from Taiwan, says she was a victim of discrimination because of her race, ancestry and national origin and of retaliation for giving a School Board member information about what she alleges was the use of the wrong fund to pay the food services director.

A Maine Human Rights Commission investigator has recommended the commission support Sims’ charges that she was a victim of discrimination and retaliation in violation of the Whistleblowers Protection Act.

A lawyer for the district tells the Kennebec Journal that he disagrees with the report because it omits significant facts.
