Man claims racial discrimination by former employer

By The Madison County Record | Jun 21, 2016


EDWARDSVILLE – An African-American man is suing Customized Distribution Services Inc. and Bill Marsh, former employers, citing alleged discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination.

Vincent Wade filed a complaint on June 9 in Madison County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they violated the Civil Rights Act and the Illinois Human Rights Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was subjected to discrimination, hostile environment and harassment because of his race. As a result, he has suffered and will continue to suffer emotional distress, mental anguish, pain and suffering, inconvenience, loss of wages and benefits and loss of enjoyment of life, he claims. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly terminated his employment for engaging in the protected activity of filing a complaint of discrimination, harassment and hostile work environment.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount in excess of $50,000, costs of the suit, pre-judgment interest and for any other relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Michael J. Brunton of Brunton Law Offices in Collinsville.
