Former Henderson ISD bus driver says he just wants his job back

Posted: Updated:

 

(KYTX) - A former Henderson ISD bus driver says he settled with the district for $10,000, but he really just wanted his job.

Lonnie Fields drove Henderson school buses until 2010 when he says he resigned for personal time.
 
He says the human resources director assured him he could return to his job.
     
But the district didn't rehire him and after complaining to the equal employment opportunity commission he sued the school.
     
Fields says the settlement amounts to a year's salary.

"Which I thought was insulting, to say the least. And it wasn't about the money. It was about being treated fair," says Lonnie Fields, Ex-HISD bus driver.

 

Henderson school trustees accepted terms of the settlement as long as fields agrees not to apply for work with the district again.
