CONCORD — A former University of New Hampshire professor is suing several university administrators, along with the institution, for allegedly not renewing his contract allegedly due to his veteran status last year.
Nathan Webster, 51, of Stratham, filed a federal civil lawsuit Sept. 30 accusing UNH of violating the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act and Age Discrimination in Employment Act after his contract as an English lecturer was not renewed at the conclusion of the 2018 academic year. Webster also alleges he was passed over for employment at several additional positions at UNH that he claims he was qualified for after his lecturer contract was not renewed.
