San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Chairman James Ramos announced today on his Facebook page that the county has settled with Director of Human Resources, Andrew Lamberto, to assure Lamberto’s departure from county government. Terms of the settlement were not released except that Lamberto will remain on “settlement-related” leave until May 27, 2016, but will not work in any capacity for the county.
“It was not easy for the board to agree to these terms following the incident. However, given the great potential for litigation in employment matters, which would cost taxpayers unknown financial liabilities, this was clearly the best option,” stated Chairman Ramos in a press release issued today.
A special closed door meeting of the Board of Supervisors was called on Tuesday for today. The subject of the meeting was anticipated litigation. Many watchers thought that it was to discuss a settlement regarding Lamberto, but as of press time, the subject of the meeting is not been confirmed. The required announcement of any action from the meeting is not available on the county’s website.
