Former El Dorado Water Agency administrative manager Cathy A. Monaghan had allegedly entered into a long-term sexual relationship with her boss former agency General Manager William Hetland to retain her job. After years of alleged sexual harassment, Monaghan filed a case.
The suit claimed that the relationship involved a three-way sex involving her, her husband Daniel Monaghan and Hetland. All sexual acts between them supposedly occurred between April 2006 and August 2009.
Monaghan also claimed that the agency fired her after making an earlier complaint for sexual harassment. After she was fired, Hetland was also terminated.
The sexual harassment suit also included claims for retaliation, wrongful discharge, breach of contract and general negligence.
