Brown County Ponders Reinstating Dead Worker

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Brown County supervisors are considering giving a public works employee who was fired before he died his job back.
Press-Gazette Media reports that the supervisors' executive committee will vote on reinstating Robert Welsing Jr. on Monday. If the committee approves reinstatement the full board will vote Aug. 17.
Welsing was fired a year ago by county officials who said he used profanity, interfered with an investigation into complaints against him and falsified time cards. He died in May.
Supervisor Patrick Evans said he and several other supervisors weren't confident with firing Welsing and want to help his family clear his name.
Reinstatement could have financial implications for the county. Welsing would presumably be eligible for back pay and insurance benefits. Supervisors say they haven't asked for cost estimates yet.
