EAST ST. LOUIS — A former production supervisor is suing Quality Packaging Services Inc. and company officers Heather Creek, Chris Ziacola and Tamara Powell, citing alleged disability discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination.
Patricia A. Warmack filed a complaint on May 27 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois against the defendants, alleging that they allegedly discriminated against her for exercising her rights.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was discriminated against and terminated from employment, causing her to suffer loss of income and benefits, emotional distress and humiliation. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly made it difficult for him to get proper medical treatment, denied reasonable accommodations, intentionally withheld policy changes so that they could catch her violating company policies and discharged her on November 11, 2014 for exercising her rights.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in her favor and against the defendants for compensatory damages, attorneys' fees, costs and any injunctive relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Emily J. Johnson of Hunter & Johnson PC in Godfrey.
