WINFIELD — A former employee is suing Toyota Motors Manufacturing, West Virginia Inc., a car maker, citing alleged discrimination and retaliatory discharge.
Danny Stidham filed a complaint on June 17, in the Putnam Circuit Court against Toyota Motors Manufacturing, West Virginia, inc. alleging that the car maker violated the provisions of the Civil Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was physically abused, verbally accosted, routinely cursed and continuously harassed by his co-workers throughout his employment. The plaintiff holds Toyota Motors Manufacturing, West Virginia, inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide safeguards, failed to adopt and use methods adequate to render employment safe and offered him no recourse when he was physically and verbally accosted.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for all damages, plus interest, attorney fees, pre-judgment interest and for any other relief deemed to be just and proper. He is represented by David M. Adkins and Karin L. Coombe of The Adkins Law Firm PLLC in Hurricane.
