Former Continuing Education Director files "whistleblower" lawsuit against Cumberland County College.

On February 12, 2015, Cumberland County College's former Director of Continuing Education filed a suit claiming that she was fired because she made legitimate complaints against her supervisors.

In her lawsuit, Nancy Pollard said that she had made several complaints to the College's upper management including that her supervisor made changes to the College's Certified Medical Assistant program that allowed unqualified students pass the class.  She also claimed that her supervisor improperly listed students in a graduation program in order of their GPA rankings and demanded that Pollard do work while she was on approved medical leave.

Pollard is being represented by Richard M. Pescatore of Vineland.  The College, which denied all of Pollard's allegations, is being represented by Wendy D. Testa and Karen M. Gottlieb of Philadelphia.
