Finance personality and radio show host Dave Ramsey is facing an accusation of firing a former staffer over COVID-19 precautions they took, per The Hill

Brad Amos, a former employee of Ramsey, has filed a lawsuit against Lampo Group LLC. In the case, Amos alleges he was fired for taking COVID-19 precautions and not supporting the company’s religious views. 

The termination of Amos’ employment came July 31, 2020, following months of colliding with the company’s lax rules on COVID-19, with management stating he “was not a good fit” and contained a “lack of humility.”

In the suit, the former senior video editor also revealed that the company did not take COVID-19 seriously. Amos provided an incident in which they hosted an in-person gathering with 900 employees attending the event in March 2020, a day after an employee tested positive for the virus.

According to Amos, employees dealt with teasing for wearing masks or taking COVID-19 precautions in the office. Ramsey Solutions commented on the lawsuit, saying Amos’ remarks over his firing are “false statements.”

“Mr. Amos was fired during a meeting to discuss his poor performance with his leaders, where he insulted his most senior leader. He was not terminated for his religious beliefs or for how he wanted to handle COVID. Ramsey Solutions’ stance has always been that we will comply with applicable laws and regulations related to COVID,” the company’s statement said.

“The company is fully prepared to defend this lawsuit and prevail. Clearly, the lawsuit’s only purpose is to smear Ramsey Solutions’ reputation and extort a large settlement.”

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.
