This instalment of You Make the Call features an emergency medical technician (EMT) who was fired after it was discovered he had left out information on his resumé.

Corey Sagstuen worked as an EMT in Moose Jaw, Sask., and Nipawin, Sask., before taking a similar position in Edmonton. When he applied for the Edmonton job, he didn’t mention he had worked in the two Saskatchewan towns.

In May 2006, city officials learned about Sagstuen’s previous jobs and that he had been terminated from them. They met with him to give him the chance to explain his employment history and why he had left the Moose Jaw and Nipawin jobs. Sagstuen told them he had left the jobs for family reasons. City officials determined he wasn’t being forthright in the investigative interview and intentionally left out information on his application about previous employment where he had been terminated. On June 19, 2006, Sagstuen was fired.
