RIPLEY — A title surveyor is suing a surveying company, alleging violation of human rights.
Thomas Hartley of Cottageville filed a complaint in Jackson Circuit Court against Paramount Surverying LLC, alleging violation of the West Virginia Human Rights Act and Worker's Compensation Act.
According to the complaint, Hartley was forced to work while suffering from work-related tears of his ACL and PLC. Additionally, Hartley alleges he was teased and embarrassed and eventually terminated.
The plaintiff alleges Paramount Surverying knew Hartley was hurt but ignored his obvious injuries and physician's recommendations. Furthermore, the suit alleges, Paramount replaced Hartley while he was off due to the injuries.
Hartley seeks trial by jury, past and future lost wages and benefits, and all other damages allowed by law. He is represented by attorney Adrian Hoosier of Lord Hoosier PLLC in Charleston.
