LOGAN — A 60-year-old woman is suing her former employers, citing alleged age discrimination, reckless conduct and wrongful termination.
Cherri Ross filed a complaint in Logan Circuit Court against The Kroger Co. et al., alleging that they terminated her employment in bad faith and without reasonable grounds.
According to the complaint, Ross alleges that she suffered and will continue to suffer lost wages and benefits, indignity, embarrassment, humiliation and emotional distress as a result of the wrongful conduct of the defendants in terminating her employment as a pharmacy technician on pretext that she was found to have deliberately placed stickers over the identification of boxes to confuse the pharmacist at the expense of customers' health. Ross immediately filed a grievance denying she intentionally violated any code of conduct.
The plaintiff holds The Kroger Co. et al. responsible because they allegedly disregarded her rights, failed to pay her all wages owed in a timely manner and terminated her employment based on her age.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for compensatory and punitive damages, attorneys' fees, interest and other relief determined just by the Court. She is represented by Nathan D. Brown and Joshua S. Ferrell of Ferrell & Brown PLLC in Williamson.
