Kootenai County likely can't enforce a gag order employees were required to sign, according to an expert in employment law. County employees were forced, under threat of losing their jobs, to cooperate in a sexual harassment investigation and sign an agreement barring them from speaking to any third parties about the investigation - including their spouses and attorneys. “I don't think (the agreement) is enforceable, especially when you're excluding attorneys,” said Ron Coulter, an Eagle, Idaho, attorney with the Idaho Employment Law Solutions law group. The agreement was signed by at least six employees of the prosecutor's office interviewed during a 2011 investigation of allegations against Deputy Prosecutor Kenneth D. Stone/Taryn Thompson, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
