Has anyone heard of a KLAS controller having an medical emergency while on duty, and if she is OK?
Yeah,after reading that article it sounds like there may be more to the story? People generally don’t get put on admin leave for a medical issue..That article is written to make people suspect she was drunk or something. “Removed from the tower”. I understand maybe it’s a privacy issue to mention medical issues but you’d think they’d want to say that if that’s what it was to prevent that in the first place. Especially since in a lot of jobs “places on administrative leave and investigation” is equated to discipline. Regular JoeSchmo’s are going to misinterpret it I think, unfortunately. Just don’t need more bad stereotype
Well I mean, it could just be the wording—technically Admin leave in the FAA is just that, and can be approved for a lot of different reason. Not necessarily discipline and is not handed out freely, believe me. So I mean It could have been a medical issue and instead of just showing her on sickleave indefinitely just saying OK we’re gonna basically show you on excused absence till we figure out what the issue was, then you can use leave. Kind of a goodwill thing. Depends on the management at the facility. Or something like that, does that make sense? I have no idea what happened and it’s pure speculation, but my comments are more directed toward what I think most people’s minds will go to reading the words that were in the article. I mean mine even did at first til I thought it through a little.Yeah,after reading that article it sounds like there may be more to the story?

That's a pretty damning thing to put on an anonymous web board. You'd better be certain before you spread that rumor (and if you are damn sure it's likely you're violating some sort of confidentiality agreement).She was already part of a program and “getting help”
