LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The General Manager of CityBus is under fire following a complaint.
"We received a complaint of a hostile work environment," said CityBus Board of Directors Chairman Ben Murray.
Murray said General Manager Marty Sennett is under investigation.
"Anytime someone makes a complaint, it needs to be addressed and it needs to be handled the correct way through a valid process," Murray explained.
News 18 spoke with Marty Sennett Tuesday morning, and he said he has been "suspended" since August 30th.
However, Murray said Sennett is not suspended, but is working remotely and not allowed on CityBus property.
"Any action against a general manager, in terms of disciplinary action, would need to be conducted in a public board meeting and that has not occurred," Murray added.
Murray declined to give specifics of the allegation.
The investigation is ongoing, but Murray hopes to have a resolution soon.
"The process needs to be valid and done the correct way for it to insure everyone is heard, everyone has a voice and it's done with validity and reliability," Murray said.
Until that happens, Murray said employees are working hard to keep CityBus running.
"We are handling it as serious as the allegations in which they are. I'm confident that CityBus will continue to be the strong force in the community."
Sennett declined an on-camera interview.
CityBus's next board meeting is Sept. 29, and Murray said he doesn't know yet whether the investigation will be discussed.
