The former human resources director at a Kansas university alleges she was fired after exposing rule and policy violations by school officials. So reports The Wichita Eagle.

Mandy Greenfield alleges in her lawsuit that Newman University fired her January 31, 2018, just four months after she began an investigation into several high profile school officials regarding harassment and gender discrimination. The officials include the vice president for student affairs and director of athletics as well as current and former mens' basketball coaches and a student.

Greenfield also alleges that she faced retaliation due to her reporting on mismanagement, abuse of authority and unethical behavior. Newman University denied the allegations in an email response to The Eagle.

"I personally complained about and was critical of the illegal harassment and retaliatory conduct of the Vice President of Student Affairs/Athletic Director...," Greenfield wrote in an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint she filed August 22, 2018. "In response, I was removed from a decision-making role, suspended and then terminated."
