A former professor recently filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against Georgia College & State University, claiming he was denied tenure because of his age, gender and disability.
In addition, he’s suing for sexual harassment and alleges the university retaliated against him when he complained about it.
The former English professor, in his sixties, was diagnosed with cancer in 2004. He claims that female co-workers made inappropriate sexual comments during the selection process. When he complained, a member of the selection committee reportedly advised him, “People don’t like whistle-blowers.”
The committee awarded the job to a young woman. The man is seeking unspecified compensation for lost income and benefits.
