The decision to lay off Sharon ..., 24 Oct 2007 [cached]
The decision to lay off Sharon Marable, he says, had nothing to do with her job performance or her race.
"We did a reorganization," he said with frustration."If people want to make it into something else, they can make it into something else."
That reorganization earlier in the year resulted in the elimination of one state employee: Marable, a $148,000-a-year assistant medical director and the only African-American doctor at the state Department of Health.
Marable has appealed Gifford's decision to the state Personnel Appeals Board, which listened for three hours yesterday as the health director explained the circumstances that preceded Marable's removal.
"It feels very good to be with people who believe in what you believe in, which is justice," said Marable, a self-proclaimed "civil-rights baby," noting that her father marched with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.A sheet of paper in front of her during the hearing quoted King: "Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of justice," it read.
And Labinger also produced several memos detailing combative exchanges between Marable and her supervisors in the months immediately preceding her removal.
In May 2006, Gifford issued a formal letter of reprimand to Marable for making "disparaging remarks concerning the policy decisions of the director of health and the operation of the department" during a Centers for Disease Control conference.
The letter also noted an incident in which Marable told a newspaper reporter that "policy changes being made within the department were ill-advised" and then used an expletive to describe her "job situation."
In October, Marable's direct supervisor, Associate Director of Health Ana Novais, reprimanded her again for her alleged behavior during a meeting."You addressed me in terms that I deem disrespectful and unprofessional.I am gravely concerned with your conduct," Novais wrote.
Marable's problems with Novais did not end there.
In a memo dated Dec. 20, 2006, Novais threatened "suspension and/or termination" because Marable did not get department permission to serve on a national committee for pandemic flu preparation. (In a rebuttal, Marable noted that the volunteer committee would not cut into her state work hours.She added that Gifford had congratulated her on the appointment.)
In the same memo, Novais lists another issue of "considerable concern.""Last week the department received a complaint that during a public meeting … you were putting lotion on your feet," she wrote.
Marable later asked that the reprimand be removed from her file.The request was initially denied.But on April 25, after Marable had been notified of her layoff, she received notice that Novais' last written reprimand would be removed from her file.
The memos suggest the department had motivation to lay off Marable "for reasons other than those stated," Labinger said.
Marable, who had worked at the department since 1998, was the least senior doctor at her pay grade, he said.
