Topeka, Kan. - A settlement was reached between the YWCA and a former employee, Lisa Hecht.
“A year and a half after alleging that my employment with the YWCA had been wrongfully terminated, a confidential settlement has been reached with neither party admitting any wrongdoing,” said Hecht. “I continue to support the staff and mission of the YWCA, most especially the Battered Women Task Force and all the good work that goes on there every day and that has for over a hundred years supported women and issues of importance to women. I learned how to be a strong and empathetic woman working there and I will forever be indebted to the Battered Women Task Force staff and clients.”
Deborah Rose, President of the YWCA confirmed that a settlement has been reached in this matter with neither party admitting wrongdoing.
“The YWCA’s top priority is to be of service to our members and clients while managing the strong existing YWCA programs,” said Rose. “This settlement will ensure that our staff and leadership can continue to focus their efforts on our programs and the individuals we serve.”
