BEAVERCREEK TWP., Ohio — The Ohio Civil Rights Commission will investigate allegations that Beavercreek Twp's assistant fiscal officer was discriminated against due to his gender.
In the May 1 complaint, James Barone says he has been subjected to a hostile work environment due to gender stereotyping since his sexual orientation was revealed to trustees and other officials in November 2008.
