Library whistleblower’s settlement came to $343,000

The Sacramento Public Library Authority will pay whistleblower Diane Boerman $343,000 to settle Boerman’s lawsuit against the agency. Boerman, a Senior Accounts Clerk, exposed a kickback scheme that cost the library over $800,000. In her retaliation suit, Boerman argued that the library denied her pay raises and promotions because of her role as whistleblower.
