Parish Paralegal Supervisor Loses Job

This is an update to my January 23, 2010 post, “Parish Paralegal Supervisor’s Qualifications Questioned.”

Apparently her qualifications and her job duties were questioned and found wanting.

FOX 8 News and several other local media sources are reporting that Karen Parker has been fired from her job as a Paralegal Supervisor for Jefferson Parrish in New Orleans. She earned a generous $64,000 per year for the position, although FOX 8 reports that she actually worked in a different department “doing clerical work and taking pictures of new employees.”

But she wasn’t the only one fired. For a puzzling account of several other employees who also held the job title “paralegal” and were paid out of the parish attorney’s budget – but worked for other departments – see the full story at FOX 8 News.

One employee told FOX 8 he had no idea he was a “paralegal” – he thought he was employed as a sports commentator.
