On Dec. 22, former Deputy Fire Chief Joe Glover filed a lawsuit against the City of Pensacola. Mayor Ashton Hayward, City Administrator Eric Olson, Chief Human Resources Officer Ed Sisson, Assistant City Administrator Keith Wilkins and HR manager Tracey Walsh.
Glover alleges that Mayor Ashton Hayward, City Administrator Eric Olson, and Chief Human Resources Officer Ed Sisson employed, discriminated, and retaliated against him by failing to rectify the harassment and discrimination complained of, by placing him on administrative leave, by changing the appeals process, by subjecting him to an unwarranted and public investigation, by ultimately terminating his employment, and by publicly demeaning his good name and record.
He is asking the federal judge to enter an Order requiring Defendants to make him whole by reinstating him into the position he would have occupied in the absence of retaliation or awarding him front pay, awarding him back-pay (plus interest), nominal damages, lost seniority, benefits, loss of pension, compensatory damages, punitive damages, and post judgment interest.
