CHARLESTON — A Kanawha County man alleges his former assisted living facility employer made him complete tasks that he was not qualified to do.
Ryan Navarro filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Teays Valley Assisted Living Inc. alleging violation of the Patient Safety Act, breach of contract and violation of the Wage, Payment and Collection Act.
The suit states that the plaintiff was employed by the defendant until Aug. 5, 2017, when he was forced to leave because of the defendant's alleged illegal actions. The plaintiff alleges he was "forced" to give medications to patients without a registered nurse on site despite not being qualified to do so.
The plaintiff also alleges he was harassed by another individual when he was off the clock by ordering him to complete tasks that he was not qualified to do.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by D. Adrian Hoosier II of Hoosier Law Firm PLLC Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Judge Louis Bloom.
