PHA Director Not Liable for Wrongful Termination
Facts: A PHA employee who served as a maintenance manager filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the PHA’s director. In June 1990, the employee was hired by the PHA and worked as a maintenance manager until his termination in March 2007. The employee claimed that his employment was uneventful, with no performance issues or disciplinary action, until early 2007. At that time, HUD placed the PHA in receivership and appointed the director to supervise daily operations.
