Veteran columnist and commentator Jober Sucaldito has recently filed a complaint against media giant Joebert Sucaldito before the Labor Department over his alleged illegal dismissal from a radio station.

According to a CNN report, Sucaldito was placed on indefinite suspension without pay for his on-air comments about actress Nadine Lustre.

The columnist said that DZMM station manager Marah Capuya served him a letter on January 10, 2020 about his suspension. He alleged that he was asked to sign a letter but he refused to do so.

And when he made a follow up about his punishment, he was told repeatedly that it is still being investigated by the network's ethics committee.

Sucaldito's suspension reportedly happened even after he apologized to Nadine as requested by the radio station. He also took down social media posts pertaining to the actress.

“Anong gusto mong gawin ko? Tumalon sa building para mapatunayan na ako’y sincere?” quoting what Sucaldito said to the reporters 

“I’ve been working with ABS-[CBN] for 20 years, and 17 years of which, I was with DZMM. Tapos ganyan-ganyan lang sisipain mo ako because of the fans na nagrereklamo? Hindi nila naisip kami that work for you? Asan mga puso niyo? Tatanggalan niyo ako ng trabaho? What happens to my family? What happens to my children?” Sucaldito said.

Earlier, ABS CBN News said that it is still investigating the  “inappropriate and insensitive comments” of the commentator against Nadine.

Sucaldito received criticisms after making fun of Nadine, who admitted that she has suffered depression, saying the actress should just go ahead and jump off the building amid the reports that she and James Reid had split.

Nadine at that time denied the rumors but later on confirmed her break up with James.
