A man who sustained an on-the-job injury filed a retaliatory discharge suit against his former employer claiming he was discharged for filing a workers' compensation claim.
Donald Duane Jones claims he was injured in Wood River on June 14, while working on a project for Washington Group International.
According to the complaint filed Sept. 11 in Madison County Circuit Court, Jones began working for Washington in June of 2004.
Jones claims his termination has caused him to lose wages, benefits, raises and promotions in the past and future, costs associated with securing new employment and humiliation and mental distress.
Represented by Lance Mallon of Wood River, Jones is seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus costs of litigation.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Nick Byron.
