Whitman Settles Unpaid Wages Suit with Ex-Housekeeper

This is a settlement for the Employment lawsuit.

San Jose, CA: Former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman has settled an unpaid wages dispute with her former housekeeper, to the tune of $5,500.

The dispute between the former e-Bay CEO and Nicky Diaz Santillan, Whitman's housekeeper of nine years, became public during the final month of Whitman's campaign. It affected public support when it became known that Santillan was an illegal immigrant. Whitman campaigned on tough immigration policies, among other things.

Whitman did not attend the settlement meeting, however her husband, Dr. Griffith Harsh IV, attended with a family lawyer. Santillan told the press she came forward to help prevent other housekeepers from facing discrimination.
