Employee says firing was retaliation

At the Board of County Commissioners workshop on Feb. 20, County Commissioner Joel Pate presented fellow commissioners with a computer printout and said he would like the matter taken care of by the county manager. Pate said the controversy involved the county’s interviewing process.

Copies of the documents provided to the commissioners were not provided to the media.

After reviewing the documents, Commission Chairman Alan Bush said that the problem seemed to have less to do with the county’s interviewing process than the improper usage by county employees of social media.

Finch was never mentioned by name as being involved in the situation the commissioners were discussing, however, it was confirmed following the meeting that the human resources director was involved.

Bush said the county does not have a social media policy in place for its employees, and he asked that the commissioners let the county manager deal with the county’s personnel problems.
