MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has fired an employee for sexually harassing a female co-worker.
An Associated Press review of DNR discipline records obtained through an open records request in March found the agency sent 26 letters reprimanding, suspending or terminating employees in 2013. The DNR supplied 25 letters, saying the last worker was challenging the release of his or her letter in court. DNR officials said Wednesday the employee lost that fight and released the letter.
The letter showed the employee was fired in August for singing a sexual rap song to a female co-worker; forcibly hugged her against her wishes; and discussed a sexual relationship with a former girlfriend in graphic detail with her.
The DNR redacted the fired employee's name.
