Back in November of 2010, Fox 29’s Jeff Cole brought you the story of Joanne Palazzolo. Joanne says she was fired as Health Department Business Manager when she tried to “blow the whistle” on Bucks County workers being paid for hours they did not work.
She also claims her request for whistle-blower protection was ignored.
Now, the 54 year-old Elkins Park resident has filed a Federal lawsuit against Bucks County. In the suit, Palazzolo asks for her job back. If this does not happen, she is seeking back pay, benefits and at least $100,000 in damages.
A spokesperson for the Bucks County Commissioners tells Fox 29 Investigates the county will not comment on personnel matters or ongoing legal claims.
Fox 28’s Jeff Cole fills you in on the latest developments in this story.
