McNeil’s administrative leave extended

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The paid administrative leave of New Hanover County’s Animal Control Services Manager has been extended.

Jean McNeil will remain on leave until Wednesday. She claims this is backlash for speaking up to her boss Health Director David Rice.

McNeil’s says her employees at Animal Control did not get emergency pay during Hurricane Irene, nor were they paid for travel expenses.

Mcneil says rice has also failed to address concerns about violence in the workplace she raised.
