The latest in the Tina Needham saga. If you've been under a rock, she's the Knox County School secretary who has been on paid administrative leave for more than two years. The same person who has filed an EEOC complaint and thus will probably remain on paid administrative leave for another year.
Anyhoo, story, which details what actually led to her going on paid leave, is RIGHT SMACK HERE.
We asked the school system why she was placed on administrative leave and not on medical leave (as they've suggested that's the real reason she's not working).
In a statement from Jim McIntyre, the superintendent said administrative leave was the only option available to the system and that any other type of action must be initiated by the employee.
That is not the case. I'll leave it at that.
