Former Nampa employee files lawsuit against city for wrongful termination


NAMPA, Idaho — A former employee for the city of Nampa has filed a lawsuit claiming he was wrongfully terminated as well as deprived of employment.

The Idaho Press-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1JmUVVP) reports that Robert Duker filed the suit Tuesday.

Duker says that he was forced to find employment elsewhere after the city refused to provide health insurance for his wife. Duker later applied for two positions at the city of Nampa, but was not hired.

The suit claims that the Duker's position was filled by someone with half his experience and given a higher salary.

This is the second wrongful termination the city of Nampa has faced within the past year.

Attorneys for Duker and the city of Nampa did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the newspaper on Thursday.
