No-show Norfolk employee says she was wrongly fired

The suspended worker who was paid by a Norfolk agency for 12 years has fired back that she was wrongfully terminated after false allegations by the city.

Jill McGlone, a former administrative worker at the Norfolk Community Services Board, wrote letters Feb. 16 to City Manager Marcus Jones and CSB Director Maureen Womack saying she wanted to meet with them about her "wrongful termination" and denial of unemployment benefits.

"No rectification can justify the moral devastation that publicly took place to my family," McGlone wrote to Jones, who became city manager Feb. 1. "My family and I suffered greatly due to a malfeasance based on falsified information released to the media by the City of Norfolk."

The city released copies of the letters to The Virginian-Pilot this week. City Attorney Bernard A. Pishko said McGlone had been scheduled to meet with him and Womack today, but McGlone canceled the meeting. He said he did not know the reason.

"How long was it that she didn't come in to work and got paid?" Pishko said Tuesday when asked about McGlone's allegation that the city had acted wrongfully against her.

McGlone has made little public comment since the no-show status was made public in August. No one came to the door at her home on Tuesday afternoon.

Commonwealth's Attorney Greg Underwood has spent nearly three months reviewing findings from a Norfolk police investigation but has not yet said whether anyone will be charged.

McGlone was suspended in 1998 on an allegation of having a weapon on CSB property. She later was accused of illegally releasing confidential medical information about a patient of the agency who was HIV-positive.

For reasons that remain unclear, the agency's director, George Pratt, never resolved McGlone's suspension by either firing her or putting her back to work. She was paid an estimated $320,000 before Womack, Pratt's replacement, found out and fired her around May 2010.

Womack has been director for two years.

No No you got it wrong they wronged her by firing her, she should be allowed to collect 12 more years and do nothing.
