Wrongful Termination – Personal Injury
Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed suit against Creative Resource Group LLC n/k/a Onpoint Industrial Services, LLC on behalf of an employee who was terminated following a work injury. The suit was filed under the Texas Labor Code § 451.001, for wrongful termination and discrimination. The case will be heard by a jury in Nueces County District Court, located in Corpus Christi, Texas.
On April 7, 2016, Doyle LLP’s client suffered a work injury due to a fall at the Citgo Corpus Christi plant. Doyle LLP’s client filed a workers’ compensation claim to ensure that she received medical treatment and income replacement benefits for any time missed from work. Following the claim, Creative Resource Group LLC n/k/a Onpoint Industrial Services, LLC began taking discriminatory actions against Doyle LLP’s client. The conduct ultimately resulted in the client’s wrongful firing on or about April 20, 2016 – less than two weeks after her work injury.
The Texas Labor Code gives a workers’ compensation claimant a cause of action against an employer who discriminates against or wrongfully terminates them. Under this statute, Doyle LLP’s client is seeking damages to compensate her lost wages and mental anguish, among other damages. In addition, the suit seeks an award of punitive or exemplary damages.
