Duluth Police Officer Bobby Johnson filed a sexual orientation discrimination complaint against the Georgia city in February.
Johnson claims that he was harassed by bad bosses because he is openly gay. According to Johnson, his commanding officers subjected him to offensive sexual comments and gay slurs.
The Duluth City Council voted on Monday to approve a $20,000 settlement offer, but Johnson has rejected the settlement offer.
Johnson has been on paid administrative leave since filing the discrimination complaint in February.
