Another former employee at Moose Jaw City Hall is claiming that a hostile work environment forced her to resign.

Former communications manager Carol Reynolds Wittman was hired in the spring of 2016 and resigned 15 months later. In documents that our newsroom has obtained, a lawyer for Wittman explained how she was subjected to an extremely stressful workplace that resulted in constructive dismissal. Wittman claims she brought her concerns to her superiors but they were never properly addressed and she was never given the support she needed to work through the issues.

The document served to the city outlines Wittman's desired to return to her position as communications manager with full benefits, as long as the underlying issues which resulted in stress and anxiety are addressed.

The city has responded to the claims through email, saying they have a different account of events that resulted in Wittman's resignation and denies all accusations being made. Wittman is now exploring her legal options against the city.

You may recall that former City Manager Matt Noble is making similar claims of a hostile work environment that he claims resulted in being forced to resign in November of 2017. The city also denies those claims and the two sides continue to proceed through the legal process after meeting in late October.
