The former administrator for a nursing school campus in Van Nuys is now
suing his former employer for wrongful discharge and defamation, claiming
that he was fire for exposing illegal conduct by school officials. The
man filed a complaint on Tuesday and is seeking unspecified compensatory
and punitive damages. The school officials declined to comment at this time.
According to the former administrator, there began to be inaccuracies and
errors in academic record keeping which involved the intentional alteration
and fabrication of records to justify federal funding requirements. The
man informed his managers about his concerns time and time again until
about three months ago when he received an email from a manager asking
him to falsify documents that would avoid interruption of federal funding.
The man claims that he refused to falsify the documents that related to
student attendance and participation in certain projects, and that the
administrator became very hostile in response.
He was fired in November on grounds that he slept on the job and was not
doing his job adequately. According to the lawsuit filed, the school administration
also defamed the man by sending emails to others that contained lies and
falsities. Defamation is an unethical behavior that is condemned in the
U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and various other legislation. If you
have been defamed in any way, you have the right to stand up for your
reputation and your good name.
