A fired city employee wants her job restored and back pay.

Mary Zlotnick, who was terminated from her clerk’s job in the Saratoga Springs Accounts Department after a hearing last year, has filed a lawsuit in state Supreme Court asking that her job be restored with back pay.

The full story is available HERE.

The lawsuit, filed by attorney Mark T. Walsh of Albany against the city of Saratoga Springs and city Accounts Commissioner John Franck, was filed on April 16.

The Article 78 proceeding seeks to overturn the ruling of a hearing officer who found Zlotnick guilty of three charges of misconduct and/or insubordination that led to Zlotnick’s termination last fall.

A copy of the suit is available below.

The city had filed five charges of misconduct or insubordination against Zlotnick last summer. Zlotnick said she brought her allegations to the attention of her superiors, the city Police Department and the state Attorney General’s Office in 2012.

She was first put on paid leave and then had a prolonged discplinary hearing.
