SPOKANE — The Spokane human resources department has investigated allegations of bullying, sexual harassment and hazing involving probationary employees of the city’s fire department.
KXLY-TV reports a firefighter brought forward the allegations, claiming a pattern of abuse has existed for years that created an “unhealthy atmosphere for probationary employees.”
Probationary employees are new hires or recently promoted workers who are under an evaluation period.
The city began an investigation in February, leading to a 40-page report.
