CHARLESTON -- A Putnam County man is suing the Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council for discrimination and wrongful termination of employment.
Nathan M. Gregorich was employed by the defendant from July 1, 2010, until Oct. 4, 2011, according to a complaint filed April 25 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Gregorich claims the termination was discriminatory in that he was terminated while on leave to care for his injured son.
The termination was also in breach of the terms and conditions of Gregorich's employment with the defendant, who failed to follow its own policies and procedures, which compromise the terms and conditions of his employment, according to the suit.
Gregorich claims as a result of the illegal termination of employment, he sustained lost wages, embarrassment, humiliation and emotional distress.
The defendant terminated Gregorich's employment in retaliation for taking vacation and then unpaid leave to care for his injured son who was only 14 months old and had sustained a leg fracture and could not attend daycare during the recovery, according to the suit.
Gregorich is seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Scott H. Kaminski.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
