A dispute that allegedly turned physical between Mansfield/Ontario/Richland County Health Commissioner Stan Saalman and a health department employee has led to him being placed on paid administrative leave.

The decision was made Monday at the health board meeting.
 

According to a Richland County Sheriff's report, the incident occurred on July 11 at the health department office, 555 Lexington Ave.,  over a video camera that was reportedly pointed at the women's restroom.
  

Health department employee and president of the health department's local union chapter, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3469, Jennifer Frazier, told authorities, Saalman confronted her about a complaint letter she sent on behalf of the union to the health board on June 28. regarding the camera that was found on June 19.

The letter stated the person responsible for the surveillance camera should be found guilty of voyeurism. The letter also cited a sexual harassment case involving one of the managers at the health department and this incident could contribute to what would be considered a hostile workplace.

In the letter Frazier said the camera was taken down after employees complained.
 

According to the sheriff's report, Saalman was upset about the letter and asked Frazier to come inside the women's restroom to see if she could see a camera. When she refused Fraizer said Saalman screamed at her and shoved her into the open restroom doorway.

After the incident Saalman left the office and did not return.
 

Saalman's paid administrative is effective July 22. An acting health commissioner will be appointed. The board has hired a Columbus law firm to investigate the matter.

Health Department officials showed WMFD-TV where the camera had been placed, inside the I-T office across from and down the hall from the women's restroom.

The vantage point would make it impossible to see anyone using the facilities, even if the door was standing wide open.
