Fired director rejected settlement offer

Susan Miller, former executive director of the Benzie Bus, rejected a proposed settlement from the agency’s board of directors prior to her dismissal during a public meeting Tuesday night. The “privileged and confidential” settlement offer tendered by board attorney Christopher Cooke to Miller proposed the following:

- A mutual non-disparagement clause which would bind both parties not to make disparaging remarks about the other.

- Both parties would agree to keep any agreement for separation confidential to the extent possible.

- The board would author a letter of recommendation for Miller.

- A correction action plan in Miller’s employment file would be removed and held in an executive file.

- Miller would agree to cooperate with the agency, if necessary, during the transition to a new director.

- Mutual releases would be signed releasing each party from any past and future claims.

- The board would not oppose any application for unemployment.

- If a motion to terminate Miller’s contract was approved, Miller would be paid severance through December.
