French filed a charge of Age and Disability Discrimination as well as Retaliation with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).
French claims he was overworked during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays of 2012 while other much younger employees were allowed time off.
Now, word comes that KAGS in the same market has hired French as their Chief Meteorologist.
"The Brazos Valley has been my home since 1990,” Bob French said. “I am so blessed that I can serve the residents here with my passion for weather and experience in forecasting."
“We are excited to have Bob on our team,” KAGS News Director Luke Simons said. “Bob is not only a great meteorologist, but a great person that truly loves this area.”
Here's some advice to Luke, don't have Bob work on Christmas or New Year's.
