Ex-officer says Hiram officials discriminated against him because of age, health and 'speaking out'

 

A longtime Hiram police officer alleges that city officials demoted him because of his age, made him work while he was on medical leave following a heart attack, and subjected him to an unlawful “fit for duty” test upon his return.

He also said he was fired in October 2018 in part because of his “refusal to stay quiet about unlawful practices” of the city of Hiram, the city manager and its former police chief.

 

’Neal’s complaint, filed by Atlanta attorney Mario Williams Aug. 13, said the violations occurred as O’Neal “had been reporting instances of the city of Hiram and its employees’ harassment and discrimination, a hostile work environment, and engaging in unlawful employment practices, such as requiring him to take a ‘fit for duty’ test upon his return to work, knowing he had been on medical leave.”
