CSC holds status conference for Meno

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Former Port Authority of Guam marketing administrator Bernadette Stern Meno appeared at the Civil Service Commission for a status conference Tuesday afternoon. The Commission previously denied her motions to dismiss her termination and decided to proceed to have a hearing on the merits of the case. 

Meno had an alleged slip and fall in the Port bathroom and had a doctor's certification to get back surgery. But when the $70,000 travel request and authorization hit Adelup, an investigation was launched.  Meno and six of her co-workers were terminated for their role in alleged scheme to defraud the government and cover it up.  A hearing on a discovery motion was scheduled for June 25. 

The Port Authority meanwhile is still waiting on the Commission's written decision in the case of Port worker Frances Arriola.  The CSC ruled in favor of the employee and voided her termination as they found management acted outside the 60-day rule.

The Port is waiting on the decision before deciding whether to take the matter to court.
