Labor company, Manpower, sued for wrongful termination

Every worker who resides in California has the right to seek justice if he or she believes that an employer violated one's rights in one way or another. A woman recently filed a wrongful termination suit against her employer. She claims her employer failed to protect her rights to lawful accommodations.

The woman had worked for Manpower of WV for approximately 20 years at the time of her termination. She filed her lawsuit after claiming she had been fired just hours after she expressed concerns through electronic mail that her workplace was now a hostile workplace and that her employer failed to ensure that her rights were protected. She stated that she had never experienced any reprimands on the job and that she had always scored satisfactory marks on her performance reviews.

During her time on the job, she had been granted a supervisory position over three satellite offices in Kentucky and West Virginia in her position as a district manager. She claims that she had met all of the expectations her employer required from her. She further claimed that her workplace had become a hostile one after she required and requested reasonable modifications for her medical condition in the summer of 2015. 

The woman is seeking compensation as well as punitive damages from her employer and A.C.Z., Incorporated. This suit was recently filed in West Virginia Circuit Court and has not yet been scheduled for trial. California residents who believe that they have been a victim of a wrongful termination may also seek the advice of an employment law attorney. A professional can offer information and support during these stressful situations in order to ensure that the rights of workers are protected and that a wronged employee is justly compensated.
