Discrimination 18

ST. LOUIS – A Joplin man alleges he was terminated from his job because of his age.

Larry Newton filed a complaint on June 27 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Clean Uniform Co. and Clean Uniform Transportation Services Co. alleging violation of the Missouri Human Rights Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff began working for the defendants in 1994 and was terminated in August 2017. He alleges during his employment, he was denied promotions that were instead awarded to younger employees.

The plaintiff holds Clean Uniform Co. and Clean Uniform Transportation Services Co. responsible because the defendants allegedly subjected him to unlawful age discrimination and harassment, denied him promotions, pay increases and advancement and retaliated against him by terminating his employment for opposing discrimination and due to his age.

The plaintiff seeks damages in a fair and reasonable amount, plus interest, attorney's fees, costs and all further relief as the court may deem proper and just. He is represented by Adam P. Pihana and Timothy A. Ricker of Hall Ansley in Springfield.

St. Louis Circuit Court case number 1822-CC10627
