NEW HAVEN — An adult education employee charged with federal health care fraud has been placed on leave, according to the city.
The action took place after the U.S. Department of Justice notfied the city that Cortney Dunlap, a New Haven Board of Education Adult Education employee, had been arrested and charged with health care fraud and making false statements relating to health care matters, according to a release.
“New Haven Public Schools takes personal information very seriously, and we will conduct an internal investigation into this matter to ensure that individuals’ personal information is not compromised,” said New Haven Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Iline Tracey.
Dunlap was placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation from City Labor Relations working with the New Haven Public Schools, the release said.
