Beth Gay was fired from her job at the Odom and Moultrie-Colquitt County (Georgia) libraries. She is well known in genealogy circles as the former editor and publisher of genealogical newspaper The Family Tree. Now Beth Gay is seeking back pay from the libraries and city and county governments that contribute to the libraries’ funding.
In her 17 years’ tenure with the libraries, Beth Gay claims that she built up The Family Tree to be largest genealogical newspaper in the world.
Represented by Atlanta firm Beard and Chang, LLC, Beth Gay currently is seeking $4,160, the alleged difference between what she said she was paid and minimum wage for two years; $19,325 in alleged uncompensated overtime; $15,000 in compensation for pain and humiliation in relation to her termination; and attorney’s fees.
