KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A third female Jackson County sheriff’s office employee is alleging sexual harassment in a discrimination complaint.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1oSRIuN ) reports that the latest complaint comes from an administrative assistant. She’s seeking more than $25,000 in damages.

Her suit comes a year after the county made the first of two payouts totaling more than $150,000 to settle sexual harassment complaints from two former sheriff’s department staffers. In the latest complaint, the woman says she was harassed by the two women who received the settlements and others. She says one of the women who later received a settlement falsely accused her of sexual assault.

The county denied the latest allegations in a court filing this month. The allegations from the other two women were never specified because the county settled.
