Worker Wasn’t Fired for Complaining about President’s Driving


A woman who claimed that she was fired after complaining that the company president was speeding and talking on his cell phone while driving during a business trip has lost her wrongful termination case. The arbitrator said that the only issue was whether her termination resulted from her safety complaint, which wasn’t the case. The evidence showed that the general manager had decided to fire her before the trip for “performance and attitude concerns” [Aug. 22, 2011].
