Risk Manager Fired by Nevada City Files Discrimination Complaint

Former risk manager Jack Campbell has filed a federal age and race discrimination complaint against the city of Reno.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that the existence of the complaint filed in June and a previous investigation into issues concerning Campbell surfaced in a staff report last week, but details weren’t immediately available.

Campbell took the first step in pursuing a wrongful termination lawsuit against the city by filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging race and age discrimination.

Campbell was fired in November by newly elected City Attorney Karl Hall, who said it was the right move for the office.
