Multnomah County to pay $100k to black worker -

• By Aimee Green

Multnomah County has agreed to pay $100,000 to a black employee who claimed the county fostered a racially insensitive workplace after she complained about a co-worker who pinned up a "Blue Lives Matter" flag.

Karimah Guion-Pledgure claimed in her January lawsuit that the flag "demeans" and "denigrates" the Black Lives Matter movement. But some co-workers didn't agree, and Guion-Pledgure claims they harassed her for it -- leading her to suffer debilitating stress and health problems, the suit said.

A probation officer hung up the flag in September 2017 above the probation officer's desk, and after Guion-Pledgure and other black co-workers complained, supervisors refused to require it be removed, the suit said.
