Times-News: CSI Vice President Alleges Discrimination, Hostile Work Environment

Posted By on Thu, Mar 20, 2014 at 9:50 AM

The vice president of the College of Southern Idaho has filed a formal complaint with the state of Idaho, alleging gender and ethnic discrimination.

This morning's Twin Falls Times-News reports that Edit Szanto also claims that CSI pushed her out of her job.

In a letter to the Times-News, Szanto wrote, "I believe that Dr. Fox and his collaborators violated my civil rights, discriminated and retaliated against me based upon my gender and national origin and for complaining about and opposing disparate treatment, favoritism, and hostile work environment."

Szano's complaint is now before the Idaho Commission on Human Rights and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Meanwhile, a court hearing is set for Monday, April 21, in Fifth District Court, where Szanto's attorney's will seek to gain access to college records concerning Szanto.

The Times-News reports that Szanto has worked at CSI for 17 years. She was removed from her duties in late January and is on paid leave until the end of her contract June 30.
