CHARLESTON – A woman alleges she felt "forced" to resign because of her age from a health care management company.
Karen Delong filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Kepro Inc. alleging violation of the West Virginia Human Rights Act and other counts.
The suit states that the plaintiff was placed with the defendant when it took over a state contract to provide health care services. She alleges the defendant had her and other employees sign documents without any bargaining power. She alleges she was "forced" to retire and resign due to her age and did not receive 80 hours of paid time off wages she had earned.
The plaintiff also alleges she suffered mental anguish from retaliation because she reported incidents of a hostile work environment.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs and trial by jury. The plaintiff is represented by D. Adrian Hoosier II of Hoosier Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Judge Tera L. Salango.
