Worth Co. clerk fired

WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - They held a grievance hearing for Rene Whidby who appealed her 60 day probation implemented on January 5th.

They determined that they would let Whidby go.

Whidby said the probation was retaliation for an EEOC complaint she filed in December and since commissioners have fabricated complaints about her job performance including that she can't complete meeting minutes quickly enough.

"You stated here that you could not complete the minutes in the time alloted by the board which was three days," said Mike Cosby, Worth Co. Chairman.

"It was hard for us to function as a board of commissioners because of the mistakes that were in the minutes," said Billy McDonald, Worth Co. Commissioner.

Whidby said she never had a disciplinary write-up before her EEOC complaint.

She's had eight in the last two months.

She also said commissioners are holding her to a different standard than her co-workers.

"I do not have a signed job description in my file to say what my job duties are. I think we've heard that before," said Rene Whidby, Former Worth County Clerk.
