In March 2017, Washburn County engaged the services of outside, third-party, investigators to investigate allegations that various County employees had violated one or more County policies regarding workplace conduct or otherwise engaged in unlawful workplace harassment.

The investigations are now concluded. The investigators found that all unlawful harassment-related allegations were unsubstantiated and that there was no violation of federal or state anti-discrimination or anti-retaliation laws. The County Board will be working to redefine roles, update policies and procedures, and schedule Roles and Responsibility training for the County Board Supervisors.

The Washburn County Finance Committee expects Finance Director Jane Dvorak to return to work in the very near future.

Any additional inquiries may be directed to Attorney Mindy K. Dale at Weld Riley, S.C.
