Former County Official Files Wrongful Termination Lawsuit


A former official that used to work for Calhoun County has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the county, according to a recent report. The lawsuit was filed late last week, and the former officials claims that whilst he was working there he made complaints to his boss about the unethical behaviour of some of his co-workers.
Rodney Guice from Seadrift made claims that unnecessary equipment was being purchased by some co-workers, and also that theft of fuel and county tools was taking place. However, in October he was fired from his job, and claims that this was because he reported the behaviour by co-workers.

The wrongful termination lawsuit has been filed by his attorneys under the Whistleblower Act, and was in Calhoun County District Court. The defendant has been named as Calhoun County. As part of the lawsuit his lawyers are seeking compensation for lost wages, attorney fees, and also the reinstatement of the plaintiff’s job.

The County Attorney is now set to respond to the lawsuit. It is also claimed that after he lost his job Guice sent a copy of his allegations against his co-workers to County Judge Michael Pfeifer.
