Amber Friend reports:
Reports of unauthorized monitoring of several Garden City Community College employees’ emails prompted the college to open an investigation Friday, an action that included starting the probe with the college’s information technology department and placing its three-man staff on suspension with pay until further notice.
The media report names the suspended staff members, but does include a statement from a letter to them by the college:
“Your suspension is not disciplinary action and does not indicate that we assume that you are guilty of any alleged conduct. Your ongoing suspension will be kept under review and we will keep the suspension as brief as is reasonably practicable,” the letter stated.
