Retaliation/Wrongful Termination in violation of Texas Labor Code 451.001
Jury Verdict: $1,706,187
On July 26, 2019, a Fort Bend County District Court found that Alleyton Resource Company LLC retaliated and wrongfully terminated Joseph Ball for instituting procedures under the Texas Worker’s Compensation Act. In reaching its verdict, the Jury awarded Mr. Ball $1,706,187 in damages, including $164,168, in past lost wages, $675,519 in future lost wages, $100,000 in past mental anguish, $16,500 in future mental anguish, and $750,000 in punitive damages.
Mr. Ball, a ready-mix concreate truck driver, worked for Alleyton for nearly a decade. After he suffered an on-the-job injury and instituting worker’s compensation proceedings, Mr. Ball was terminated. During trial, Mr. Ball put on evidence that Alleyton violated its internal policies, concealed the reason for Ball’s termination, contradicted its basis for the termination, and failed to timely and accurately document the termination. As part of the judgment for the verdict, Doyle LLP will also be entitled to obtain pre-judgment intrest and costs
