Elizabethtown College Facing 3 Breach of Contract Lawsuits

Three former-employees of Elizabethtown College have filed individual breach of contract lawsuits against the school.

Two of the former employees, Juanita Clark and Colleen Edwards, filed their lawsuits due to an employment dispute over contract, while Leah Brooks filed her complaint seeking judgement for breach of contract. All three women worked with the Parent and Community Leadership team at the college. The lawsuits derive from accusations by the plaintiffs that the college owes them money due to unpaid vacation time, both earned and implied, after their termination.

Brooks claims the college refused to pay her unpaid time in excess of 7.5 days. Edwards’ lawsuit claims her contract with the college was breached when she was terminated on December 10, 2008. She claims her contract guaranteed her employment through June 30, 2010. Clark is seeking to retrieve the anticipated vacation time that was allegedly implied in her contract.

All three plaintiffs are seeking individual damages in excess of $75,000 plus interest, as well as attorneys’ fees.
