HUNTINGTON – A Scott Depot woman alleges she was wrongfully terminated from her job because of pregnancy.
Jacqueline Katrina Dallmeyer filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Dutch Miller Chevrolet Inc., Chris Miller and Michael Alexander alleging that they violated the West Virginia Human Rights Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff was employed by Dutch Miller as a business development manager. She alleges one month into her employment, Dutch Miller became aware that she was pregnant. She alleges because of her pregnancy, Alexander undermined her and hindered her from exercising her authority because of her pregnancy. She alleges she reported the treatment to Miller and no actions were taken.
The suit states the defendants terminated her without cause on March 11, 2017.
The plaintiff holds Dutch Miller Chevrolet Inc., Miller and Alexander responsible because the defendants allegedly subjected her to disparate treatment and terminated her based on her gender and pregnancy and failed to pay all wages due to her on the next pay period after terminating her employment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, plus interest, attorney's fees, costs and any further relief as the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Erika Klie Kolenich of Klie Law Offices PLLC in Buckhannon.
