Town Responds to Maclaughlan Suit
The town has filed a response to a lawsuit against it and Town Administrator Richard Waldo filed by former principal clerk Jeanne Maclaughlan.
According to online court records, Wellfleet has hired attorney Gareth Notis of Boston-based Morrison Mahoney to defend Waldo and the town against Maclaughlan’s suit, which alleges age and disability discrimination in her termination from her town job in July 2022.
According to the town’s filing dated Oct. 31, Waldo and the town deny all allegations proffered in Maclaughlan’s suit, deny that Maclaughlan is entitled to damages, and “call upon the plaintiff to prove the same.”
Maclaughlan filed the lawsuit in August and served the town on Oct. 18, according to court records. She is seeking $100,000 in damages for “lost wages, loss of benefits, and illegal termination resulting in lost future wages and other damages.”
Waldo had terminated Maclaughlan’s contract after she failed to show up to work upon exhausting her paid Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave and accrued sick time. —Sam Pollak
