Jury awards $545,000 to Fremont charter school founder who was fired

The founder and former chief executive of a charter school in Fremont has been awarded $545,000 in damages by jurors who found that she had been fired in retaliation for complaining that she had been discriminated against. An Alameda County Superior Court jury ruled that board members at Families of Alameda for Multi-Cultural/Multi-Lingual Education Charter School, or FAME, created a hostile work environment for Maram Alaiwat, retaliated against her and breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing by preventing her from doing her job.
