WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - An investigation into a complaint made by a female department head in the city of Watertown will start next week.

The complaint is against City Manager Rick Finn. It alleges Finn created a hostile work environment.

An independent company from Glenville, New York - Public Sector HR Consultants - will do the investigation.

7 News has reported the complaint cites more than half a dozen incidents and lists several witnesses.

The complaint was formally filed last week, but council members confirmed for us the city employee has felt they’ve been treated unfairly for “some time.”
