ST. LOUIS — A former employee is suing Roha USA LLC, citing alleged disability discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination.
Stacey A. McArdle filed a complaint on Nov. 3 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Roha USA alleging that the domestic corporation violated the Missouri Workers' Compensation Act and the Missouri Human Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 29, 2016 he was severely injured at work, but was told if he did not return to work he would be fired. Once back at work, McArdle claims he was further harassed and after refusing to work overtime was fired on June 29, 2016.
The plaintiff holds Roha USA responsible because the defendant allegedly discriminated and retaliated against him, and terminated his employment because of his on-the-job injury and workers' compensation claims.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, costs, attorney's fees, and any further relief that are just and equitable. He is represented by Ryan M. Furniss and Joshua G. Miller of The Furniss Law Firm LLC in St. Louis.
