FAYETTEVILLE – A Fayette County woman has filed a suit against an Alloy company over allegations her gender and race were factors in her termination.
Aumentine L. Watson filed a complaint in Fayette Circuit Court against WVA Manufacturing LLC alleging wrongful discharge.
The suit states that the plaintiff began working for the defendant on May 9, 2012, and was always a good and valuable employee. The plaintiff alleges she was wrongfully terminated on June 5, 2018, due to her gender and African-American race.
Prior to the termination, the plaintiff alleges she was attacked by a female employee on May 25, 2018, who was Caucasian. The plaintiff alleges she previously reported the employee's racial harassment to supervisors and asked that they be separated, but that request was only briefly accommodated. She alleges the May incident was another factor in the termination.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Scott H. Kaminski of Kaminski Law PLLC in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Judge Thomas Ewing.
