HUNTINGTON — A pharmacist is suing Wal-Mart, alleging failure to uphold Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.
Chanda Adrins filed a complaint in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia against Wal-Mart Stores East LP, alleging violation of the West Virginia Human Rights Act.
According to the complaint, Adrins who suffers from multiple sclerosis, was illegally terminated from her employment at the Wal-Mart store in Beckley on March 20, 2017. The suit says Adrins has incurred damages including lost income and benefits, humiliation, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and damage to her professional reputation.
The plaintiff alleges Wal-Mart Stores East has failed to provide reasonable accommodation and retaliated against Adrins by terminating her for filing an EEOC complaint and for continuously requesting reasonable accommodation.
Adrins seeks trial by jury, all damages, attorney fees, court costs and disbursements and all other additional, just and proper relief. She is represented by attorneys Brandon S. Steele of The Law Offices of Brandon S. Steele in Beckley, and by Anthony M. Salvatore of Hewitt & Salvatore PLLC in Fayetteville.
