Local woman sues housing management company for wrongful termination


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A local woman is suing a rental housing managing company claiming wrongful termination.

Vania Minor was a property manager for Keyway Management Co., 319 E. Washington St., according to court documents. In the course of her employment there, she reported that individuals working for Keyway were allegedly illegally receiving payments by making false reports to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Minor was fired from Keyway on March 7, 2011, allegedly for making the reports concerning the individuals, thus violating USDA regulations.

Minor claims that the public policy of Iowa allows employees to report violations of state and federal law by property managers without fear of termination.

Minor also claims that Keyway Management has failed to fully pay all wages due to her, in violation of the Iowa Wage Payment Collection Act. She claims her former employer is liable for not only her unpaid wages but also liquidation damages, interest, court costs, expenses, and attorneys’ fees.

Minor is demanding a trial by jury.
