The former director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services will receive more than $155,000 in exchange for “releasing all claims against” the state, according to a separation agreement provided to the Free Press.
The agreement states the money provided to Robert Gordon constitutes nine months of pay and health care costs. Gordon resigned in January after signing a new employment agreement the previous October that included a $182,000 salary, according to records obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Reached Monday, Gordon declined to comment.
