An article on explains that Veitch was fired by the KHRC on November 28, 2011, but that Robert Layton, the chief hearing officer and executive director of the Kentucky Office of Administrative Hearings, had handed Veitch a 365-day suspension, which began yesterday (February 16, 2012).

The report explains that the suspension would be imposed if Veitch successfully appealed his firing.
