Hearing next week on former Corrections employee’s human-rights complaint

HELENA — A multi-day hearing is scheduled next week on a human-rights complaint from former Corrections Department employee Adrianne Cotton, who said her job was eliminated in 2018 in retaliation for her sexual-harassment claim against the agency director.

The hearing, at which state Corrections Director Reg Michael and other state officials and former state employees are scheduled to testify, is slated to begin Monday in Helena, before a Labor Department hearings officer.
