Paramedic Fired After Complaining About Supervisor’s Excessive Profanity

Taking It To Court Next

PAUL S. NEWELL HAS BEEN EMPLOYED as a paramedic by the Lower Valley Ambulance Service in western Pennsylvania since 2006.  However, he was fired from his job last May supposedly for "misprioritizing ambulance calls."

Yesterday (Wednesday) he filed suit against the firm claiming he was really fired because he complained about his supervisor's execessive use of profanity and now he wants his job back plus some punitive damages.  The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting:

(Newell) said in the complaint that he was hired there in 2006, and is a practicing Christian. His supervisor used "profane speech and expletives that were highly offensive and/or blasphemous," according to the complaint filed by attorney Joseph H. Chivers.

He complained to the supervisor, then to a higher manager, and was then suspended, the lawsuit said, ostensibly for misprioritizing ambulance calls. He was then fired in May.

The lawsuit in U.S. District Court said he suffered discrimination for being a Christian, and retaliation for complaining.
