The city has fired a supervisory employee after a two-month investigation into accusations of workplace sexual harassment and pornographic e-mails being sent on city-owned computers.

``The employee will have a right to appeal (the decision) and that time to appeal has not yet run,'' Bullhead City Attorney Kent Foree said.

Nine city employees were placed on leave in January and February after two female employees filed sexual harassment and hostile workplace complaints. The furloughed employees worked in three departments: Engineering, Development Services and the Information Technology Division.

A city investigation later discovered that some employees were e-mailing sexually explicit materials.

Those employees were placed on administrative leave along with others who were accused of sexually harassing the female employees both on and off the job.
