Cal State Northridge refuses to pay former Matador women's basketball Coach Janet Martin four months' salary she claims is owed her by the university, Martin's representative from the California Faculty Assn. said Tuesday.
In a written response to a contract grievance filed by Martin, Northridge on Monday declined to pay its former coach the disputed money because the school says there is no basis for the grievance, said Rick Nadeau, Martin's representative from the CFA.
"Northridge is sort of playing hardball," Nadeau said. "The university says (Martin's contention) isn't valid because she resigned her position. I am arguing that the conditions under which she resigned were problematic."
Martin has 21 days to appeal CSUN's decision to the chancellor's office of the Cal State University system in Long Beach.
