RENO, Nev. (AP) — A former Reno city worker says the city cut short her employment last year when she complained that a supervisory co-worker had been sexually harassing her.
The Reno Gazette Journal reports that the woman alleges former revitalization manager Bill Dunne locked her in his car and exposed himself to her after she had spurned his advances. She says in court documents the city then let him resign without facing discipline.
Dunne denies the allegations.
City officials said at a brief news conference Thursday they take her allegations seriously but refused to answer any questions about the city’s handling of the incident.
