Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Employment – discrimination — statute of limitations
Patricia J. Sallis, pro se, appeals from orders of the circuit court affirming opinions of the Labor and Industry Review Commission (LIRC). In the LIRC opinion underlying appeal No. 2011AP2024, LIRC affirmed an administrative law judge’s dismissal of Sallis’s employment discrimination complaint against Aurora Health Care, Inc. (Aurora). The administrative law judge concluded after a hearing that probable cause did not exist to believe that Aurora unlawfully discriminated against Sallis because of her race, gender, or age. In the LIRC opinion underlying appeal No. 2011AP2023, LIRC upheld an administrative law judge’s decision, reached without a hearing, that Sallis’s claims in her amended complaint against Aurora are barred by the applicable statute of limitations. In Part I of the instant opinion, we set forth the factual and procedural background underlying these appeals. In Part II, we reject Sallis’s arguments challenging the decision that no probable cause exists to believe that Aurora discriminated against her, and we reject her contentions that procedural errors prevented her from developing her allegations. In Part III, we reject her arguments challenging the decision dismissing the claims in her amended complaint as untimely. We affirm. This opinion will not be published.
