A former Chippewa County employee is having his grievance claim rejected by his former boss. The Leader-Telegram went into detail about the case. As 37-year-old Nate Liedl worked in the county clerk of courts office for six years before running against his boss Karen Hepfler in the 2018 election.
Liedl was fired shortly after the election and claims it was only because he ran against his boss. His grievance claim was rejected by Hepfler but he says he’s considering filing a wrongful termination suit against the county. Liedl is also the father of six-month-old Jaxon Hunter who was allegedly stomped to death by a ten-year-old girl at a Chippewa Falls daycare back in November.
