Newly released documents show that Mason City Schools settled a gender discrimination lawsuit filed by former human resources director Jodie Anderson for more $170,000. Anderson filed the lawsuit in July 2018, alleging that men employed by the district were making more than women for the same type of work when she examined salary structures in 2015.The district denies any wrongdoing as part of the settlement. The settlement was announced earlier this week, ahead of a trial that had been scheduled to start January 7th.Anderson’s lawsuit had said that despite receiving “outstanding reviews” for her job performance, Anderson’s salary was frozen at $87,550.The school district argued in a response that Anderson received more than $7,500 in excess pay without board approval, confirmed by a state re-audit.
