Settlement reached in Whistleblower case against the city of Long Branch claiming violations of New Jersey's Conscientious Employee Protection Act

A former city employee who claimed she was fired for acting as a whistleblower on official misconduct filed a complaint in April 2011.  Her specific accusations were that the city was in violation of New Jersey's Conscientious Employee Protection Act when it fired her for whistleblowing during her employment. The details of the settlement were not disclosed.

Between 1995 until her dismissal in 2011, the whistleblower served as the city's principal personnel clerk. She was barred from asserting several pieces of evidence if the case went to trial. The barred evidence included her claim the city fired her for cooperating with FBI agents conducting an investigation in 2005 during Operation Bid Rig.

Operation Bid Rig was the state's largest federal corruption sting, targeting dozens of politicians and officials in Monmouth and Ocean counties and elsewhere in the state.
