Employer asserted employee had waived her claims by executing a Severance and Release Agreement and filed a motion for summary judgment. Employee argued that the waiver did not apply because the explanation for her termination, elimination of her position, was not true as evidenced by employer’s subsequent hiring of a male employee in her same position. Employer’s motion for summary judgment was granted by the court citing that the waiver was valid and enforceable, and waived all claims related to her employment.
