Samuel Jackson filed a complaint on July 2 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Vitro Products Inc., doing business as Vitro Seating Products, alleging retaliatory discharge.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 20, 2017, he was discharged from his employment with the defendant. He alleges a few days earlier he had reported pain in his right elbow and asked to see a doctor.
The plaintiff holds Vitro Products Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly retaliated against him by terminating his employment for filing a workers' compensation claim.
The plaintiff seeks compensatory and punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and any further relief as the court deems proper and just. He is represented by Sean M. Flaherty of Thurman, Howald, Weber, Senkel & Norrick LLC in Hillsboro.
