There has been a settlement in the case of a Peachtree City, Georgia firefighter who alleged that her fire chief had pressured her to have sex with him.
As we reported last December, Peachtree Fire Chief Edwin Eiswerth was accused of repeatedly propositioning a female firefighter, MP. Within hours of the allegations becoming public, Chief Eiswerth announced his retirement effective January 1, 2013.
The settlement calls for MP to receive $350,000, with $300,000 being paid by Georgia Interlocal Risk Management Agency (GIRMA), the city’s insurer, and $50,000 paid by the city.
In exchange, MP has agreed to dismiss her complaint with the EEOC, and relinquish her right to file future lawsuits over the matter.
