A Maine marketing firm has settled a lawsuit with a former employee who claimed she was drugged at a company party and fired after requesting accommodations to recover.

The Portland Press Herald reports an attorney for Trueline Publishing told the court Tuesday both parties reached a settlement.

Both the company attorney and the attorney for the former employee declined to comment on the terms of the settlement.

Diana Salas sued the firm last year saying she feared she was drugged at a company party in 2016.

She said she was diagnosed with stress disorders as a result, and she was fired after asking for permission to work from home.

The firm denied her firing was retaliatory, and it said police found there was no evidence anyone tampered with Salas’ drinks.
