ST. LOUIS — A former employee is suing an employer, citing alleged retaliation and wrongful discharge.
John W. Martin of Jefferson County filed a complaint Aug. 28 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Harris Davis Rebar LLC, alleging that the employer refused to provide workers' compensation benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 3, 2015, he was injured at work and filed a claim for workers' compensation. As a result, he claims he was constructively discharged on Nov. 18, 2015, and suffered lost wages and employment benefits, emotional pain and suffering, humiliation and personal degradation. The plaintiff holds Harris Davis Rebar responsible because the defendant allegedly discriminated and retaliated against him and terminated his employment for claiming workers' compensation benefits.
The plaintiff seeks damages of more than $25,000, costs of this suit and further relief the court deems proper. He is represented by Charles R. Wooten and Kristine H. Bridges of Robert, Wooten & Zimmer LLC in Hillsboro.
