Cuyahoga County may be forced to pay millions of dollars to dozens, perhaps hundreds of employees, based on a civil lawsuit claiming employee salaries were unfairly cut while Ed Fitzgerald was county executive in 2011 and 2012.

Attorney Joshua Cohen is representing county employees in the case, and told newsnet5.com Fitzgerald played a role in unfairly cutting pay to salaried workers through reclassification, and increased the work week from 35 to 40 hours without any additional compensation.

Cohen said the initial class action lawsuit was filed on behalf of 23 employees, but he said the suit could be expanded to 150 workers who were employed in the offices of the county auditor, clerk of courts, recorder and the department of information services.
