Sandra Crupe vs. Warren Distribution Inc., Michael Skidmore, Bill Smith, Clarence Campbell and Eric Violet
PA- Nicholas A. Wininsky; J- Karl
* Crupe sustained a workplace injury in February 2010, when she stripped over a skid, fell and broke her right wrist. The Safety Director, Bill Smith wanted her to go to her doctor's appointments then immediately return to work. He even showed up unexpectedly at the doctor's office during one of her appointments. Her short forearm cast allowed her to return to work with light duty restrictions. Her wrist did not heal correctly which required her to be off work on Workers' Compensation with follow- up surgery. Warren abruptly terminated her employment during Nov. 2010 while she was still recovering from her broken wrist. Plaintiff has suffered general damages as a result of said wrongful retaliatory discharge. Compensatory damages for all economic losses are requested.
