CHARLESTON — An employee is suing a health care business, alleging discrimination, retaliation and violation of state law.
Kimberly Craig of Putnam County filed a complaint March 23 in Kanawha Circuit Court against REM West Virginia LLC and Karen Dawson, alleging they terminated the plaintiff's employment as retaliation.
According to the complaint, in 2016, Craig, who had worked for the defendant since 2007, was damaged financially from being terminated from her employment. The plaintiff alleges the defendants retaliated against her for complaining about their refusal to correct procedures that could endanger patients at REM West Virginia.
Craig seeks trial by jury, damages, reinstatement, back wages, reinstatement of benefits and seniority rights, actual damages, attorney fees, court costs and all other appropriate relief. She is represented by attorney Walt Auvil of The Employment Law Center PLLC in Parkersburg.
