PITTSBURGH — A former employee is suing Ken Horn Plumbing, an employer, alleging wrongful termination.
Andrew Voye filed a complaint on Dec. 7, in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County against Ken Horn Plumbing, alleging that the employer wrongly fired him.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2016, he was terminated for exercising his workers' compensation rights. The plaintiff holds Ken Horn Plumbing responsible because the defendant allegedly retaliated against the plaintiff by terminating his employment after he was injured and exercised his rights to restricted duty.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount that exceeds $35,000 plus any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Samuel J. Cordes and John E. Black, III of Samuel J. Cordes & Associates in Pittsburgh.
