Two West Virginia state agency lawyers placed on leave amid a dispute over a contract no longer have to work from home.
The Charleston Daily Mail reports that attorneys Susan Perry and Jennifer Taylor have been assigned to Department of Health and Human Resources offices at the Diamond Building in downtown Charleston.
The two had been working at the department's nearby offices at One Davis Square when they were placed on paid leave in July. The lawyers and a third DHHR official had clashed with others at the department over the awarding of a six-figure advertising contract.
Perry and Taylor filed whistleblower lawsuits in October. The third official who questioned the contract, John Law, is also on paid leave but is not taking part in the lawsuits.
