MVI: Lawsuit from ex-employee is “without merit”

The following statement was released today (March 8) by Jason Togyer, communications manager for Mon Valley Initiative:

“Mon Valley Initiative offers a safe, inclusive and tolerant workplace for its employees and all of the people whom we serve.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy for any behavior that does not respect those values.

“As a result, MVI finds the allegations made by ex-employee Sherman Jones to be without merit.

“MVI is defending itself vigorously against his allegations and looks forward to a successful outcome in court.

“MVI is committed to continuing to provide award-winning services, including employment and financial coaching and homebuyer counseling, to people in three counties.

“MVI must decline any further public comment about this litigation at this time.”
