County Supervisor

Oconee County, SC: (Feb-5-08) Ann Hughes, former county supervisor, brought charges against Oconee County, alleging that she was wrongfully termnated. The suit was filed in May 2005, when former county administrator Ron Rabun fired Hughes from her job as the county's consultant on compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The parties reached a settlement, resolving the long drawn out saga. As part of the settlement reached, Oconee County officials will pay $28,000 to purchase two years of time for Ms. Hughes in the state retirement system, which will enable her to reach the required 28 years. Additionally, she will also receive $47,000 in a cash payment, for a total of $75,000. Under the terms of the deal, Hughes also will agree to cooperate in all aspects of bringing about the settlement and will sign a release exculpating all county officials and employees for any further liabilities. She officially will be a county employee for a time to meet the requirements for buying the retirement time, but she will not be required to do any actual work or even be on county premises.
