BECKLEY – An African-American man alleges his former Raleigh County employer subjected him to discriminatory treatment.
Navaunty Blaney filed a complaint on Dec. 2 in Raleigh Circuit Court against Nelson Tree Services Inc. alleging that the former employer constructively discharged him from employment.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in May 2011, as a result of defendant's actions, he was forced to quit employment, which caused him to suffer lost wages and benefits, emotional distress and incurred fees, costs and expenses. The plaintiff holds Nelson Tree Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly subjected him to discrimination and adverse employment actions due to his race.
The plaintiff seeks compensatory and punitive damages in an amount based on evidence. He is represented by Craig A. Hewitt of Hewitt & Salvatore PLLC in Fayetteville.
