The whistleblower case filed on behalf of Paul Olson, a high level employee of Minnesota’s Department of Human Services (DHS) has settled for $295,000. Olson had alleged that the DHS had ostracized him and removed all meaningful responsibilities from his position after he refused his managers’ demands to violate a statute to give a financial benefit to Fairview University Medical Center. The terms of the settlement include compensation for wage damages and emotional distress. View the Olson v. DHS Settlement Agreement.
