University professor denied workers’ compensation
A former professor at the University of Northern Iowa was denied workers’ compensation by state officials after she filed a lawsuit against the school for causing her to have a mental breakdown.
The woman claimed that administrators and colleagues created a stressful and negative environment, which caused her to have a mental breakdown and leave the school. The Deputy Workers’ Compensation Commissioner found that the woman failed to prove that mistreatment by the administrators was the direct cause of her breakdown.
The woman has stated that she will be seeking an appeal.
