Arizona Republic: State Parks Department Fires Long-Term Employee On Medical Leave

The State Parks Department has fired a long-time official, who’s been out on long-term disability leave.

It’s the latest incident involving a state employee’s firing. In fact, late last year, Gov. Doug Ducey instituted a new step for agency directors to go through before they can get rid of an employee.

Craig Harris has been covering this for The Arizona Republic and azcentral.com, and he joins us.
