Secret Settlements Extend to Universities

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa Board of Regents has released settlement agreements showing the state's three public universities have made cash payments of more than $1.3 million to resolve employment disputes since 2011.

The release of documents Wednesday to The Associated Press comes after Gov. Terry Branstad released similar settlements covering the executive branch in March.   

The $1.3 million in cash payments doesn't include dozens of cases in which universities reimbursed employees for back pay, including for suspensions that were later rescinded, or the cost of benefits. Nor does it count instances in which employees were allowed to remain on the payroll for a short period of time after their duties were reduced or eliminated.   
The largest settlement revealed in the documents was a $275,000 payment to a former University of Iowa doctor.
