The four month paid administrative leave of absence has come to an end for Nicole Guerrero. The beleaguered bookkeeper was terminated by the Golden Valley Fire District today. Guerrero was served notice of intent to end her employment on December 19. She exercised her right to appeal which led to a lengthy pre-disciplinary hearing conducted Friday, January 9. Assistant Chief Jack Yeager has informed Fire District Board members that he followed through with formal termination after careful consideration. “Mrs. Guerrero was notified January 14, 2015 that she has been dismissed, effective immediately and reminded via the final letter, of her appeal rights under the District’s policy manual,” Yeager wrote in his communication to the Board. “We will provide Mrs. Guerrero a final paycheck, in full compliance with the District’s Policy Manual, and complete the necessary personal action forms.” Guerrero will have earned in the neighborhood of $18,000 in pay and benefits since she was initially placed on leave in mid-September. That’s when she named the Fire District in a harassment claim that is still pending.
