The Hour reports (https://bit.ly/2EtjpHb) that the Board of Selectmen approved the settlement worth more than $17,500 with Detective Eva Zimnoch in April. The town’s insurer paid the sum.
Zimnoch said in her claim that colleagues complained when she started wearing V-neck shirts and capris to work in 2015, even though then-police Chief Robert Crosby approved the attire.
She says colleagues also wore sneakers with no consequence, despite a department ban.
Zimnoch says the department became a “hostile working environment” when she took a stand.
The details of the settlement were recently disclosed through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Current police Chief John Lynch declined comment.
