    This poor woman's former boss has got to be one of the most clueless people I've read about. After firing her and putting her through months of wrongful emotional trauma, he ought to have been contrite and felt a sense of shame for what he put her through, and then acted accordingly.

    Instead when she returns to work, he tells her she has to write a political letter to get back what was wrongfully taken from her in the first place.

    I've glad everything is finally taken care of.

    Given thar there are callous and clueless people who do become bosses, unions and worker protections ARE a necessity. The next time you hear conservatives say otherwise don't you believe it.

    I believe Gov. Herbert was not aware of the payout. How would he know? It's not the governors job to micro-manage every state agency. Why would UDOT have told him.

    A wrong has been made right. It is too bad that the public had to step up with a petition and media coverage before UDOT was willing to do the right thing. But that seems to be the only way lately our elected officials respond.
    Governor Herbert should replace John Njord (head of UDOT) for the total mishandling of the whole thing. From the questionable bidding process of the I15 core progect to the 13 million dollar payoff to Flat Iron-Sknska-Zachry to not do the job. Governor Herbert needs to be replaced this November for the total mishandling of so many issues. Just one is him saying he didn't know about the 13 million dollar payoff. What kind of leadership is that?

    $57.6K for legal fees? Good. What about back pay? This still is not right.
