PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office is facing another lawsuit for alleged workplace discrimination and sexual harassment claims.

The person who filed the most recent suit was a Corrections officer at the Clinton County Jail from 2018 to 2021. The sheriff’s office operates the jail in Plattsburgh.

The lawsuit claims the office repeatedly failed to enforce its sexual harassment prevention policy and that supervising officers subjected female Corrections officers to discriminatory practices and policies. It also claims other female employees were subjected to the same mistreatment.

In addition to the office, it also lists Officer Travis Durham as a defendant.

This is at least the third lawsuit filed against the office.
