PUTNAM COUNTY — Patricia Clementz, Cloverdale, a former maintenance custodian employee for Putnam County, has filed a small claims case against the Putnam County Commissioners with Commissioner John Love named as the defendant. The case indicates she is seeking her sick pay after being discharged on August 28, 2013.

According to public records in the commissioners office, Clementz, requested upon her doctor’s orders, a change in the description of her work duties due to certain disabilities. Upon review of the request the commissioners denied the request, stating she was unable to perform the essential job duties of her position. The records cited the Ohio Administrative Code 123:1-30 that allows for involuntary disability separation.
